We hope you #takeahike with us this week! *Week 3*

    **Winners have been announced! Scroll down to see them!**

    Another Monday, another hiking challenge! This one was the toughest for me last year…because the trails around here just aren’t that DIRTY! Which is a really good thing. But, not everywhere is a National Park…and there are plenty of disrespectful people who leave their junk everywhere. So, this week we challenge you to get out there and help make the earth (or at least that trail) a little bit better.

    And thank you so much to everyone who has joined in, who has invited a friend to join in and who has helped support US in making this successful. We are just getting started!

      1. Not sure where we’ll find a dirty trail either! We mostly hike in a National Park too and in general I rarely see trash (which is a good thing, right!?)
