Happy Trails Day

Power down your computer, put your phone away

turn off your TV, go outside and play.

Miles and Reese drag the human along the trail to Colorado's Wheeler Geologic Area.

That Netflix series binge can wait

and so can the Facebook you claim to hate.

 

Nature awaits outside of your door

filled with wonders for you to explore.

 

You might see a moose or a naked hippie;

the outdoors can be a little bit trippy.

Reese knows that sometimes you have to blaze your own trail. Then run back and forth over it.

But our public lands welcome us all

though Republicans would drape them in funereal pall.

 

So explore the gifts we share when this Saturday breaks

National Trails Day, like Christmas, is worth an early awake.

 

You guys... I think we lost the trail....
