Great Plains Trail

"The best view of the mountains,
is from the plains." - K. L. Purdy
I love discovering new, epic trails being planned.

I recently found out about a mega-path called the Great Plains Trail. Here is the first paragraph from the Great Plains Trail website:
The ultimate goal is to establish, preserve and promote a long distance, non-motorized trail running north/south through the short grass prairies of the Great Plains, resulting in a trail that runs from Canada’s Grassland National Park on the U.S./ Canada border to the summit of Guadalupe Peak in Guadalupe Mountains National Park, Texas.

Now that sounds awesome to me. I love the plains, I adore long-distance trails, and I am a particular fan of trails in the western portion of the U.S. because, well, they're easy for me to access. This trail will fill the bill nicely.

I wish Steve the best of luck with this trail, and I hope he quickly generates a big fan base. It would be fantastic to make this trail dream a reality.
