The Quality of Life in the Place We Live

Right now, there’s a terrific opportunity to enjoy some of nature’s splendor using existing and new Gateway Trails. Start at the GW Trailhead on Everitt Memorial Highway and head up the original Gateway Trail. About a half mile up, you can turn sharply left on the new Moon Doggie Trail (there’s a single, etched, plastic marker on a juniper post that says “Trail” with an arrow at that site. Turn left there instead of following the arrow straight). This entire route is covered in purple creeping sage in full bloom, as photographed by Mike Hupp (below). You can see more of his photos on his Facebook page:
