We live in a time with many threats to our hiking trails and outdoor education: climate change, increased traffic, and decreased resources. The No Child Left Inside movement has raised our awareness of the importance of outdoor education for our youth. So given the threats to this important commodity, I wanted to take a moment to share a story about a hike in the Israeli desert that had an impact on me.
I was inspired by a recent blog article I read from Words of Barrett. His story of his challenge course experience reminded me of facing my greatest fear on the power pole. I thought I’d share a story I wrote about that experience.
