Summit Daily has an excellent write up entitled "Meet the Woman Behind Colorado's Highest Trails" that explores how some of our highest profile trails got to be where they are.
Knowing how they got there and thinking about the care and planning that went into them is an excellent reminder to those of us on the trails to continue that tradition and ensure the trails remain for the explorers that follow us.
We thank Loretta McEllhiney for her important work and writer Sarah Gilman for telling her facinating story!
