Volunteer Appreciation Night 2019

The New Mexico Volunteers for the Outdoors held their annual Volunteer Appreciation Night, with food from Garcia’s, door prizes, awards, talks, and conversation.

Chris Fritzsche gave a preview of upcoming projects, quite exciting for me. An impressive number of backpacking projects are scheduled for June.

David Ryan was guest speaker, talking about locations from his book 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles: Albuquerque, many of which our organization will work on in 2020. He finished the speech with a touching quote from his dog:

All walks are good,

I don’t know how long this walk is going to be,

But I know one thing,

This is the best walk I have ever been on,

Because this is the walk I am on right now.
