Membership Has Its Privileges

Just sent a check for $40 to renew my Sierra Club membership. I really wasn’t going to but after receiving a third letter from the organization and some reflection on my part as to why I initially joined, decided not to let my membership lapse. About 6 years ago 5 friends and I embarked on a 14-day road trip to visit the Grand Canyon. Along the way, we camped and hiked at Rocky Mountain National Park, Bryce Canon National Park, Arches National Park, Zion National Park and Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. It was only then that I fully understood why conservationist are so protective of these national treasures. So as I relaxed one night hanging off the Grand Canyon talking to my friends about how nice it would be to have a boyfriend here (all of us were single at the time), I vowed I’d be become a life long member of the Sierra Club.
