hike into the hills

we took a family hike up to stewart falls last week. it was an early evening hike and since this trail is on the backside of the mountain, it cooled off and stayed so pleasant as we marched along. something about being outside and among the trees and the grass and water and the earth is mentally cleansing. so much junk that plays around in my head or builds up if I stay inside too long seems to catch the wind and drift off when I'm walking along a quiet path outside. the focus on each step and the new sights around each bend take my mind to a simpler place. sometimes I just need simple.

  1. Sometimes, I just need simple too! I love the mountains, blue sky, waterfalls and green foliage. I agree, being in nature is so cleansing!
