On The Cover, A Favorite Event Returns - Hello, Expo!
April 1, 2022
This is worth celebrating: The Arizona Game & Fish Department's Outdoor Expo is back! After a two-year hiatus, the popular family friendly event returns. I am taking this as a sign that our past couple of years of restricted activities are finally coming to an end. I hope I am right and that we will be able to cheer on "normal", be it the new or otherwise.
The Expo, in a sense, kicks off the spring season in the Southwest, and as you will note in this issue, the focus is on such great outdoor activities such as kayaking, canoeing, and paddling sports as well as preparing for family camping.
We've waited what has seemed an eternity for this new freedom to enjoy our outdoors. Hopefully, this will continue to be the case.
