On this Outdoor ExplorerÂ we’re revisiting an important topic: â€śLeave only footprints.â€ť â€” Itâ€™s an ambitious philosophy. Most of us who recreate outdoors like to think we do a good job of this. We pack out our trash. We travel across landscapes with a light footprint. But how good are we? Weâ€™ll hear experts talk about what it really means to leave no trace â€” from scattering your fire circles to packing out human waste. Minimizing your impact in the outdoors helps ensure others who travel after you get the same wilderness experience.
