Now Open for Business

A short post today!

Here's something new: The Katy Trail State Park Store, on the DNR's Web site--just in time for the twentieth anniversary of the Katy Trail State Park.

(Yes, that's a link! Click on it.)

At this point, it's mainly logoed tee's and sweatshirts, mugs and steins, aprons and totebags, but something tells me this is just the beginning.

And even though the items so far are only about the Katy Trail and Missouri State Parks in general, there might be a lit-tle room for expansion into other popular state parks.

They're probably going to monitor how this stuff sells, and decide on expansion based on that. Personally, I think a Prairie State Park coffee mug, with a lovely panoramic photograph covering the whole thing, would be fabulous.

But maybe that's just me.

Anyway, check it out. If you and your friends are fans of the Katy Trail, this might be just the ticket for a quick gift! And a way to show your support of our natural resources, at a time when the powers-that-be are looking to cut every budget but their own salaries . . .
