Random Tip - Kids/Family

Tip:
A day out as a family is wonderful and makes memories. But please use this as a chance to teach respect for nature rather than letting your kids or pets run wild. I have been enraged at seeing a young girl with fists full of wildflowers she picked along the trail, and Mom seemingly not caring. Meanwhile Junior was throwing rocks down on the trail from above while Dad just smiled. Teach your kids respect for the environment - do not pick the flowers. Do not throw the rocks. Do not leave the trail. Do not slide down slopes and speed up erosion. Its common since so it shouldn't be to hard to fallow the rules; there are rules for a reason so PLEASE fallow them. If you or your family do not know the rules check out the list of rules at most trail heads or look online for rules on the trail you will be on. Most importantly take only pictures, leave only footprints.
