On The Cover - May 2019
May 1, 2019
Thanks to Dallas Shewmaker of LowerGear Outdoors for the enticing cover photo and for reminding us that it is time to go camping. He mentions that Arizona has a wide range of year-round camping opportunities that provide a respite from the often-chaotic hustle of the city. He quotes John Muir with this summary of the main benefit of being outdoors: "Wash your spirit clean".
As we soon move from spring into summer, there are many opportunities ahead to escape and explore, many with families. Even "beginners" have opportunities to learn how to make the best of the outdoor experience - from equipment to foods to safety to activities while camping - and much more.
So, perhaps we all should consider another comment from Muir: "Break clear away, once in awhile and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods".
