Hello. My name is Steve Myers, and I am the founder of the Great Plains Trail vision. I would like to extend a big Great Plains welcome to all viewers of this site, but a special welcome to anyone arriving from the National Parks Traveler website!
Our website is currently under construction, so if you want to find out more about the Great Plains Trail, you can click on the above tab, “About the Great Plains Trail.”
Also, if you’re interested, below you will find approximately 50 posts mostly about the Great Plains in general (ranging from Native Americans to current events to inspirational Great Plains quotes), but also some posts about the efforts to create a non-profit in order to turn the idea of the Great Plains Trail into a reality. Despite the recent confusion about IRS Form 1023, I am happy to report that the process is going smoothly, and the plan is to be a full 501(c)(3) organization in just a matter of a few months.
If you’re interested in any of these topics below, please comment on them and I will be happy to reply. You can also send any comments or questions in an email to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am truly excited about the prospect of a National Scenic Trail in the Great Plains, and I will leave you with one of my favorite quotes related to grass, and therefore, to the Great Plains:
“I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journey-work of the stars.” – Walt Whitman
