Cool article.  The first picture, with the crowns, looks like moose antlers.

Thanks, SagetoSnow.

From a personal perspective, I like learning about the individuals who work at nonprofit outdoor organizations. They tend to be interesting, outdoorsy, dedicated folks, who deserve some attention and thanks.

So, thank you, Anitra and the folks at PCTA!

Nice aritcle. 

I agree with FromsagetoSnow, those crowns look like moose antlers, and being from Manitoba, that's the first thing I noticed.

Volunteers are important to natural resources. I am always happy to see people put time into things they believe in.

Large well maintained trails like the PCT are a mixed blessing. They provide access and fast traveling for thousands of backcountry users each year. They also concentrate users in the same areas requiring permit systems and "wilderness management."
