Joshua Tree National Park, CA: The Subaru Legacy Winter Getaway event is being held amongst the backdrop of Joshua trees, granite cliffs, and endless sunshine this week. Subaru is hosting journalists to come and learn what it is like to be a Subaru owner. Driving down desert roads, rock climbing, and visiting beautiful national parks is all apart of what Subaru owners love. The one thing missing was a dog in the back of each car for the participants! The Subaru Legacy was featured during this lifestyle campaign for the journalists to drive and experience.
Journalists from all over the country came to Joshua Tree National Park to test out the Legacy and live the Subaru lifestyle. The participants got to go climbing with a local guide company and test themselves on the cliffs. As Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers we were on site to explain the important partnership Subaru has in supporting Leave No Trace and lead participants on a hike. As we hiked through the desert, we loved seeing the excitement on the participants’ faces as they took pictures of the rocks, Joshua trees, and the climbers scaling the cliffs all around us.
As Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers we get to have this experience year round. We camp over 200 nights a year out of our Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid, visit national parks, and climb/paddle all over the country. We love meeting other Subaru owners and hearing what they love most about their Subaru. Some people tell us how confident they feel driving it, how reliable they are, how easy to maintain they can be, but the most common conversations we have with Subaru owners is where their Subaru brings them. Driving over snowy mountain passes to go skiing, using their Subaru to get tot the put-in for paddling, or exploring a backcountry road to find the crag they want to climb at. Subaru fits in wells as are title sponsor for the Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers program because of how responsible they are as a company.
Thanks for reading and remember to be like Bigfoot and Leave No Trace!
