Palmer, AK – We all feel it sometimes – where has the month gone! Here we are almost at the end of November. As we approach Thanksgiving, I often start thinking about how much I value gathering over the years with friends or family to share time together. And then I think, I really need to get outside and burn off a bit of that amazing meal! You have all seen the #optoutside campaign. Take up that challenge! I have seen contests for the best pictures using your leftovers to simply sharing your outside adventure. Either way, I urge all of us to get out there on our amazing trails throughout the Borough and enjoy! Share your best #optoutside stories and pictures on our Facebook page and tell us what you love about our Mat-Su trails this Thanksgiving! From all of us here at the Mat-Su Trails and Parks Foundation have a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving!
