Recently, three American Conservation Experience (ACE) interns working for the BLM-Utah National Trails Program embarked on a truly unique adventure. Trekking more than 400 miles along the Old Spanish National Historic Trail (OST) in southern Utah, the adventurers set out to meet Interior Secretary Jewell's recent challenge "...to inspire millions of young people to play, learn, serve and work outdoors." Joined by BLM-Utah's new media lead and videographer, the #OSTadventure crew captivated a national audience as they documented their journey along the historical route, live on a myriad of social platforms.

Joined by a BLM or trail association field expert at each juncture, the crew searched for traces of the past -- sharing the adventure online, viewers experienced and engaged in the highs and lows of the trip. Each day the #OSTadventure crew connected the dots as they discovered Utah's rich culture, history, and beauty. Whether on foot, bike, or horse, the crew worked with local field offices to highlight adjacent recreation resources as they visited cultural sites and landscapes associated with the historic trail.

Engaging more than a quarter of a million viewers LIVE online, the intrepid #OSTadventure crew found the perfect mix of substance and excitement.

To commemorate their adventure the crew developed a video highlighting their journey. We are pleased to premiere it here for everyone today. It effectively captures the youthful spirit of the trip and is geared toward millennials in search of adventure in America's great outdoors.
