Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife

There are a number of ways and reasons to get outdoors in 2009.

My name is Carlee Klatenhoff and my outdoor resolution for 2009 is to be a white water raft guide in West Virginia on the Gauley. My name is Dan Hayes and my outdoor resolution is to hike the Colorado Trail, which is 500 miles from Denver to Durango. My name is Chris Holmes, and I’m the Outdoor Program Coordinator and it’s my new year’s resolution to make sure every state park has a geocaching place. My name is Samantha Peek and I’d like to plant at least one new flower in 2009.

Big or small…personal or professional… the outdoors can help you achieve your aspirations. Outdoor columnist, Drew Schlussel, resolved to get out more in 2008 and looks to do the same in the upcoming year.

When you’re outside, you don’t have any interruptions, distractions like the computer and the television. And it just reminds you that there’s something more to do than what you have to do every day.

For recreation, spiritual renewal, or interests in wildlife and conservation: Texas offers a variety of ways to take part in nature. Explore the outdoor possibilities on our website:

Make life better in 2009 by getting outside. From all of us at Passport to Texas: have a happy and healthy New Year!
