To run in tomorrow's AZ Daily Sun (article already posted online tonight:http://azdailysun.com/news/local/article_38156f32-fefa-11de-992a-001cc4c03286.html)

"The Flagstaff man, horseback rider and former teacher known as the founder of the Arizona Trail died on Sunday following a yearslong battle with cancer.

Dale Shewalter was known as the force behind the creation of a hiking, horseback and biking trail that runs most of the length of the state, from the Mexico border near the Huachuca Mountains to the Utah border north of Jacob Lake.

A plaque commemorating his work stands in Buffalo Park.

He is survived by a wife and a son."

Dale was a good friend, a model teacher, and an all-around great guy. I've owned his old 1985 Specialized Expedition touring bike for years. I'm gonna try and take it out for a spin this weekend.

The extent of his contributions to trails in our state cannot fully be expressed with words, but they will surely endure. He will be missed in many ways.

It was a pleasure getting to know and work with Dale on the AZT the past 5 years or so. He had a great attitude and a positive outlook on life and such, he will be missed

He did indeed leave quite a legacy and I've enjoyed every mile of it. Thank you Dale.
