Ned Fritz standing in front of a Catahoula Forest sign Ned Fritz and the Texas Land Conservancy Over the years at Whole Earth, we’ve had a wall of remembrance at our office where we post photos and obituaries of our heroes. Residents of the wall have included Sir Edmund Hillary, Colin Fletcher, and one particularly close to our heart, Ned Fritz.

Young man with a backpack listening to music Texas Tees This past summer some of our fellow Earthlings were out on the road visiting national parks and public lands far from Texas. When they finally returned home, they shared their stories and photos, and we tried hard not to be too jealous.

A person scrubbing the bottom of Chaco sandals with a toothbrush while a dog looks on Time to Clean Your Chacos! It’s August. It’s hot. Really hot.
