National Trails Day

Across the state, and the country, the first Saturday in June is identified as National Trails Day.

According to the National Parks Service, the annual event is hosted by the American Hiking Society, “Which celebrates not only national scenic and historic trails, but all trails on public lands.”

Hail the dirtbag

Intrinsic to the Big Sky Dirtbag culture is continuity. Beneath the crazy capes and crowns there exists a sense of homage for the wild ones who came before. Local lore is that Dirtbag Kings and Queens are selected for being the last ones to leave the party and the first ones to make tracks on the mountain.
