Pack it in, Pack it Out

As more and more people visit the wilderness the evidence of their presence is everywhere.

People who use the wilderness for leisure need to help keep it clean. If it wasn’t there when you came then don’t leave it there when you leave. Including this…

You should know how to have fun in the wilderness in a way that doesn’t negatively impact our natural resources.

We all make mistakes. What’s important is how we own up and learn from them. The mountains are patient.

    Mahusay!

    Mabuhay ka, Jef Rox!

    Mabuhay ang mga basurero…yung namumulot, hindi yung mga gumagawa ng basura!

    Ika nga ni Kuya Germs, More power to you!…sabay abot ng lata ng Birch Tree.
