Arizona Trail Association is source of pride for the state

by Denise Meredith

Arizona, a relatively new state, is not known for valuing history. So it is refreshing when an organization takes the time to recognize an accomplishment that is not related to sports or entertainment. In a ceremony that was both jubilant and moving, on Saturday, February 1, 2014, the Arizona Trail Association (ATA) celebrated its 20th anniversary at the South Mountain Park Environmental Center in Phoenix.
