Jim Schmid’s Trail Quote of the Day #311 – Aug 19, 2016



In the last two centuries, walking on the whole has passed from the realm of necessity into that of choice. It has become more specialized in its forms, having differentiated itself into types of romantic country walking, urban pedestrianism, race walking, hiking, recreational walking, and even mall walking.

—JOSEPH A. AMATO, On Foot: A History of Walking, 2004
