The Ozark Trail is one of the best long distance trails in the country. The Ozarks are beautiful.
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 buildexperiences that influence future generations. Supporting and protecting this incredible Missouri asset brings tremendous benefit to our communities.
