Is this the New Norm
Things have changed since the world came to a halt due to COVID -19. Fortunately for many of us, access to the outdoors has still been possible during these difficult times. In the state I live in, trails and many open spaces have remained open. I applaud the decision by our state leaders to do this. Getting outside to exercise not only helps everyone keep their sanity, it also keeps one healthy so people have a better chance of not catching the virus.
However, don't expect to have you favorite trail to yourself anymore. Trail use is up dramatically. People are getting outdoors to do what in some cases is the only form of activity outside the home they are allowed to do with their family. Please practice proper social distancing and follow state guidelines so these options we have right now are not taken away - don't ruin it for everyone else!
