More gifts that help support trails
This year, a group of trail runners in Washington has created a beautiful and fun wall calendar about their sport. Proceeds from the sales of these calendars, which are just $12.50, benefit WTA. Click here for a list of stores selling the calendar. Or order online from Zombie Runner. Thanks to Glenn Tachiyama for creating this calendar to help support all the work WTA does on trails!
If you're looking for music as a gift, The Mountain 103.7-FM has created a CD of live music that benefits The Wilderness Society. The CD includes tracks by David Gray, Feist, Death Cab for Cutie, and Brandi Carlile and is available online and at select Starbucks stores in the Seattle-Tacoma area.
And the new Washington Trails Association t-shirts look fantastic and are great for hiking. Made of wicking material rather than cotton, they'll keep you warm and dry during the hiking season. And the shirt is illustrated with an exclusive "digital block print" image by local artist Roy Hughes. Roy's style is reminiscent of the old WPA-era posters promoting the National Park Service during the 1930s and 40s, but he uses digital technology to achieve this unique look. Roy served as artist-in-residence at Glacier National Park in the summer of 2006, and we're fortunate to have such a talented artist donating his work to support WTA.
