Tread Lightly and Leave No Trace
Leave No Trace

LNT Logo Leave No Trace is a simple idea: we can visit wild places in a manner that records little or no sign of our passing.

Leave No Trace hopes to influence the decisions people make while visiting public lands by educating them about recreational effects on the land and techniques to minimize or prevent impacts. Leave No Trace is best understood as an educational and ethical program, not as a set of rules or regulations.

Leave-No-Trace -- Leave What you Find

Leave What you Find: Treat resources with respect. When you find something interesting, enjoy it, but leave it for others to discover and enjoy too. Antiquities and artifacts on public lands are protected by law; leave them alone. Remember things with pictures.

Leave No Trace

It is okay to pick up, examine, contemplate the mysteries, and photograph items of interest you find in the desert...

Leave No Trace ... but when you are finished, put it back where and how you found it. In particular, archaeological artifacts are only of interest when studied and catalogued in place. Move it, and you disconnect the time from it place, greatly reducing the value of the item to science. Leaving it in place also leaves it for someone else to discover and experience the same excitement you had when you found it.

Happy hiking! All distances, elevations, and other facts are approximate.
