Ahh…I feel like I can breath again. The trails have finally dried enough to go hiking again. It’s my opinion, that natural beauty of life can be found hiking in the woods. It is unparalleled to any walk, in any neighborhood. The sight of plants growing freely, dancing in the wind, spinning, and turning in every direction made me fall in love all over again with morning hikes in the woods. I will take wild and free any day, and any time over “meticulous, over-manicured, and overly planned lawns”…That’s just my opinion…Call me a “tree-hugger” if you must…I will gladly say yes…and proud of it! It’s the difference between genuine and fake. I prefer the same quality in people as well.
