BENEFITING: Ozark Trail Association, Inc
EVENT: OTA - 2018 OT Challenge Hike
EVENT DATE: May 05, 2018
The Ozark Trail may be the most beautiful long distance trail in the country.
I used to enjoy hiking and being outdoors, but eventually dropped it when I got married and became heavily invested in my career.
As the kids have gotten older, I've had a chance to reconnect with them through hiking. We do long 3-4 day weekends out on the trail, away from cell phones and schedules. We talk. We learn things about each other and we develop some independence-building skill sets.
That's what the OT means to me. Bringing families together. Connecting people to nature. We build experiences that influence future generations.
