Have you ever walked among land so spiritual it gave you goosebumps? The moment I stepped out of my car and onto the trail head at Devil's Tower I knew I wasn't alone. A crisp, cool breeze surrounded me and I felt a vibe like no other. It wasn't negative energy by any means, just a strong, enticing sense. A spiritually significant place this is to many Native American Tribes, in fact over 20 Northern Plains Indian Tribes consider Devil's Tower sacred. With each one having their own oral history about the creation. The sense I received from this land attracted me to explore more, learn more and define my place in the cultural and natural world.
As you hit the trails and travel on your way, don't forget about the organizations who make these moments possible and the people behind the scenes. I've renewed my American Hiking Society membership and made an extra contribution today. I'm very thankful AHS makes it possible for me to hike the trails that I love. I'm also very grateful for all the volunteers who give their time to trail maintenance. With out AHS trails would be disappearing on the daily. If you're an avid hiker and looking to give this Tuesday, I highly encourage you to join American Hiking Society.💚👣 @americanhiking
