Luxuries include, half a dead raccoon, off site parking and bats! So many bats. -Zillow
Is social media killing the outdoors? That may be one theory on overuse in our parks. Many trails haven't been designed for increasing usage of the trails in direct correlation to social media, and providing insight to parks many of us didn't know existed. Really, social media makes it acceptable to do things on the trail that aren't acceptable, due to people not being aware of proper #leavenotrace ethics. For those of us who have the outdoors engraved into our blood, it's our social responsibility to provide knowledge of these principles, and set the example for people wanting to #optoutdoors
@thegearjunkie recently posted an article about the proposal of an 8th principal.
It states, "Be mindful when posting on social media and consider the potential impacts that rapidly increased use can have on wild places.
Use discretion when posting on social media and consider the potential impacts of creating a ‘buzz’ about specific destinations." What are your thoughts on the creation of an 8th principal?

Millions of years ago this once was a sea cave, created by lava explosively injected into wet sediments and home to prehistoric hippopotamus and ancient sea lions. Due to a life time of the tide eating away at the inside of the cave, the top of it finally fell in on it self, forming what we now know as the Devil's Punchbowl
This pregnancy was easy for me physically, but life over the last 9 months was nothing short of the most exhausting emotional roller-coaster. The last month of my pregnancy was especially difficult because of the #eaglecreekfire and all of the dangerous smoke in the valley as well as the uncertainty it brought with potential evacuation. In reality, we were always safe and probably wouldn't have ever been evacuated, but when ash is covering your car and lawn for weeks at a time and there are days you can't see 100yds in front of you because of the smoke, you start to freak out about bringing a child into all of the mess. I prayed for rain, everyone prayed for rain. We all had our own reasons for wanting the rains to come and the fires to go out, and I just wanted the earth to be at peace when I brought my baby into it. On Sunday evening, two days before Jameson was born, we got our first sprinkle. Monday, the day before he was born, we had off and on rains. Tuesday, the day he was born, it rained and rained. I sat in the hospital bed with my new babe just watching the rain for hours and feeling so much joy and gratitude for the new life that I held and for the life that the earth was replenishing with the rain. Tuesday was the most perfect PNW day with the thick clouds rolling low and the rain spattered on the windows. I'm so grateful for the rains and the effect they had in the fires, and I'm so proud that I have an Oregon baby ❤️
