Ruby on Rails upgrade
By: Hugh Watkins
The wayback achive started recording the site in 2007, but I started coding the site in the middle of 2006.
I started the site mostly as a way to explore Ruby on Rails, at the time in 2006 it was new technology but seemed to hold a lot of promise. I really enjoy hiking in the mountains and especially trails with waterfalls, so I thought this would be a good combination. Looking back I'm glad I jumped on the Rails bandwagon it has been enjoyable both personally and professionally.
I hope now that I have this site current on the technology, I can start adding some more features. I would really like to make it more interactive, since I can not go hike all these trails myself, I want to make it so everyone can post their own observations on trail conditions, top trails, etc.
Thanks for using the site and I hope it's helpful for you.
