350 Mile Walk Kicked Off By Backpacking in San Rafael Swell with Salt Lake High School Students

Guest post by Jamie Pleune

Jamie and Ryan Pleune kicked off the first ten miles of their 350 mile walk with a ten mile backpack in the San Rafael Swell accompanied by eleven high school students.   The Pleunes are walking 350 miles through Utah to raise awareness for climate change and the importance of protecting wild places.   They were pleased that the symbol for the first mile that they walked on this journey was a wilderness study area boundary.  You can learn more about their journey at www.thewildernessproject.com.
