Trailwork

If you’d like to continue to see this quality programming…

For long time readers, you know that I typically run a Summer Solstice sale over at my photography site – Bill Anders Photo.

For those of you new here, that’s what I do.

But not this year.

Instead, all I ask is that you consider supporting our fundraiser for the Pacific Crest Trail Association  (PCTA), the organization to oversees and coordinates protection and maintenance of the PCT.

Our goal for this year is to raise $4,000.  We’re currently sitting at $1,595, just under 40% of our goal.

If you’re enjoying the stories that the trail provides, please consider donating through our Razoo site –  http://tinyurl.com/le5cu9j – where the minimum donation is just $10.  Since the PCTA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, you may be able to deduct your donation on your 2015 taxes (US residents only).

Every little bit helps.

If donating to the PCTA isn’t your thing, please consider instead our local trail advocacy organization, the Siskiyou Mountain Club.

Gabe Tenor runs a very small operation that works to protect and maintain trails in the southwestern Oregon and northern California, including several Wilderness areas.

Another 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the SMC is looking to raise $7,000 by July 1st to fund interns for the summer to restore 30 miles of trail in the Wild Rogue Wilderness.  At last report, they have raised just over $5,200.  Again, every dollar helps.

Please browse over to the SMC Membership page for details.

Thank you all for your support.

  1. BTW: Somehow I seem to have missed your trail names. I’m starting to run into PCTers in Ashland, and when I ask them if they know you they ask, “What are their trail names?” I’m proud of both of you…whoever you are on the PCT!
