Jim Schmid’s Trail Quote of the Day #442 – Dec 28, 2016



If a body takes out to follow a made trail down over the hills, he’d best hold to that trail, for there are not too many ways to go. Most of the trouble a man finds in the mountains is when he tries shortcuts or leaves a known way.

—LOUIS L’AMOUR, Treasure Mountain, 1972
