When visiting the outdoors always know your limitations. Some of my experiences may be strenuous and it is very important to know your limits to avoid getting lost, injuring yourself or others, or even worse. It is important to always check the weather and terrain and plan accordingly. It is very important to care for the great outdoors. I can’t stress enough the topic of Leave No Trace. Always keep it clean, pick up after yourself, don’t litter, don’t harm and/or harass the wildlife and nature, and stay on the trail.  Doing so will help maintain the areas well kept for many future generations to enjoy.
