Hug a Bunny and Pick Up Trash: Saturday is National Public Lands Day

Saturday is National Public Lands Day, a day to spruce up some of the much-loved, and sometimes under appreciated, parks, forests, beaches and preserves. Personally, it's something that should be celebrated daily and after visiting Great Smoky Mountains National Park, I believe this even more.
So what happened out in the beautiful national park last week? Read my editorial to find out.

Sounds like a good idea. I miss going to some of those national parks. It's not as easy to get to the good ones around here either. Can't wait to move back to the US and take my wife to all the best places.

Carry out what you carried in and leave nothing behind but footprints.
Simple enough. I never got around to hauling out baggies of you know what but a hole carefully located with a small shovel or garden trowel covers a lot of ssssssss.stuff.

Matthew - Jia (your wife, right?) will love the parks!

Keith - you're absolutely right but I just don't know how some people don't get it.
