"If you can't be in awe of Mother Nature, there's something wrong with you" ~Alex Trebek
Sunday afternoon I took advantage of the amazing weather and went hiking at a placed called The Pinnacles in Berea, KY. It is my favorite hiking destination. I normally go at least once per month. Once I arrived at the top, I simply sat and appreciated the view. This is my favorite part of hiking…just taking it all in. Something about the scenery makes you reach into a deeper part of your soul.
I took a moment to just sit there in silence and enjoy the sound of “nothingness”. No cars, traffic, machinery, etc. Just the sound of the wind whistling through the trees and the birds in the distance. It’s amazing what some time with Mother Nature can do for you. It was pure tranquility. The fact that the birds were singing in the distance at the top of their lungs made this experience every bit as powerful to the ears as it was to the eyes.
Do you get a chance to nature hike very often? If so, what type of area do you hike to?
