Welcome to Interior Trails’ blog, Traildog Log.
Gabe Travis and Christine Byl are long-time traildogs who, after many seasons working for federal public land agencies (NPS and USFS), started their own trail design and consulting company in 2008. We plan to use this space for miscellaneous posting–sharing details about our projects, publicizing important issues and events in the trails community, spreading the word about the many cool things our partners and clients are up to, and relating stories and thoughts from years on the trail.
Technical, anecdotal, activist or hilarious–here’s where you’ll get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at a field-based small business in Alaska. Akin to the park service cabin log and the smeared Rite-in-the-Rain field notes, The Traildog Log proudly preserves the oral tradition of traildogs everywhere.
