Images of Quiet Waters so grand

Yesterday, I had the honor of volunteering once again at the 19th Annual Quiet Waters Symposium (QWS) held at the Michigan State University Pavilion. This year I helped staff the Michigan Trails and Greenways Alliance booth for several hours. Even several feet of snow on the ground could not keep the attendees away from the symposium.

What I particularly enjoy is the way the QWS has grown from solely water-oriented recreation such as kayaking, canoeing, flatwater surfing, and sailing, to other non-motorized outdoor activities, including snowshoeing, bicycling, hiking, camping, cross-country skiing, bird watching, environmental education, and woodworking. Below are a several  photos of this fabulous environmental event that is always a top priority to attend.  Congratulations to all those who organized the 2014 QWS.
