  • The lighting of the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree was on December 6 on the National Mall. This year the tree's ornaments included a tribute to the 50th Anniversary of the National Trails Act. Twenty-five National Trails and the National Recreation Trail logo were turned into approximately 50 ornaments, large and small, to celebrate the anniversary. The large ornaments adorned the 80-foot-tall Noble Fir from the Willamette National Forest. After a November harvest, the tree traveled east, following the Oregon Trail in reverse in commemoration of the 175th Anniversary of the Oregon Trail. Smaller ornaments decorated the numerous companion trees that decorate the offices throughout the Capitol. • 📸 and content by @trails50 | #northcountrytrail #nationalscenictrail #whyihike #findyourtrail #encuentratucamino

  • From our excellent Wisconsin volunteers: "New Trail signs to mark the new distances with the Bayfield County Forest reroute. The new segment is 0.2 miles shorter and much more scenic. Thanks, Rita Oswald, for making and donating the signs." • #northcountrytrail #findyourtrail #encuentratucamino #whyihike

  • The NCT Navigators were in the Rainbow Lake Wilderness on December 3, where they hiked and maintained their adopted section of Trail for the first time since flash flooding damage in June. "We sure know how to have fun playing and working on the Trail!" -Sara Balbin • The water damage that took out a section of NCT was phenomenal. The Chapter is also working with the @u.s.forestservice on receiving approval for reroutes marked by Bill Menke, NCTA Regional Trail Coordinator for Wisconsin. • 📸 by NCT Navigators, edited for Instagram | #northcountrytrail #whyihike #findyourtrail #encuentratucamino #rainbowlakeswilderness #usfs

  • This past October, we held our second Crew Leader Training of 2018. It was hosted by the Baldwin District Ranger Office for the Huron-Manistee National Forest. • 30 new Crew Leaders and long-time volunteers attended from the Spirit of the Woods Chapter​, Western Michigan​ Chapter, Chief Noonday Chapter​ and beyond, and were joined by representatives from both USFS and NPS. Crew Leaders covered project planning and leadership skills, hiked a section of the NCT and learned more about a recent Trail Assessment, and discussed how to identify and fix common issues on the Trail. • NCTA's Director of Trail Development Valerie Bader plans to conduct at least one Crew Leader Training in each of the seven states, with most occurring in 2019. If your Chapter or Affiliate is interested in hosting one or if you're interested in learning more about becoming an NCT Crew Leader, please contact Valerie at [email protected] Big thanks to National Park Foundation​ for supporting our Crew Leader program! • @goparks #northcountrytrail #findyourtrail #encuentratucamino #whyihike #nationalparkservice #usforestservice

  • It’s Fitness Friday, everyone! Today, I wanted to share a couple thoughts I have about fitness as it relates to wellness. — Fitness is an important aspect of who I am, so it’s no surprise it significantly impacts my wellness. For as long as I can remember, I have been extremely active. When I got sick and no longer had the energy to stay active, it took a major toll on my psyche. It got to the point where I was barely able to get of bed for weeks. It’s difficult to truly appreciate what you have until you’ve lost it, and this was true about my energy. Regaining my energy has been a life changing experience. I see what my body is capable of through a different light, and I don’t want to take it for granted. — Historically, “exercise” to me has been a means to an end, and usually the end is dictated by society. I want to flip this on its head and turn exercise or simply “movement” into the end. I want to do fitness for the sake of fitness. Only then will it be sustainable. The fitness part of my wellness journey involves figuring out how to make this happen in my life. I have started by thinking about the sort of things that motivate me. These include learning, educating others, working towards goals, and having fun. I like to have fun. — I will be sharing here and on the blog what I learn about fitness techniques, theories, and tutorials on topics such as running form, injury prevention, habit formation, and making exercise fun. I’ll also share what I do to stay active and anything new I might try, such as my first bonafide backpacking excursion. And finally, I’ll share my fitness goals and progress along the way.⠀ Cheers!

  • Hiking along the North Country Trail/Buckeye Trail you get to see some interesting things. Indiana and Ohio made many canals from the great lakes to get products to the Ohio River. At Providence Metropark in Northeast Ohio they have a working section. You can take a ride on the canal barge and it goes through a lock. I happened to hike by at the right time. The crew asked where I started and where I going. We talked a little and I waited for them at the lock to see it operate. I don't have any pictures of the lock hate operation, because I was helping them! They have me the 411 on how the lock works. My geeky engineering side was in heaven. On the trail we get tired, or get focussed on the miles. Remember to stop and enjoy things along the way. And if you get a chance, this Park was pretty cool! . . . #nct #northcountrytrail #buckeyetrail #hikerslife #hikerlife #hike50nct #hike100nct #hikersofinstagram #engineering #canalsystem #metroparks #providencemetropark #easypath #wabashyeti

  • Hoping to sneak in one last hike before winter set in I went out to Mt. Azure and began to climb. As I began the ascent snow started to fall, the higher I made it the worse the snow got, when I finally reached the top it was so overcast you could only see the wispy marble like texture of the enveloping mist. Just as I was about to start climbing down the wind began to calm the clouds began to clear and the light began to stream in from the heavens above into the valley below. . . . . . . . . . . #northcountrytrail #northcountry #exploreyourworld #awakethesoul #outdoorlovers
