“Before there were roads, there were only trails. Before there were wheels, there were only hooves, feet and paws. Before the earth was overpopulated and became dominated by technology, there were long established travel-ways on all continents. Before the Norsemen and Columbus found “North America” (the original name being lost), the continent was crisscrossed by a trail system chiseled into the earth by

animals large and small and the silent moccasins that followed them.”

-Lamar Marshall, Cultural Heritage Director
