I Love the Outdoors and Nature

    I took this along the 'nature conservancy'

    trail I walk/jog on. The overcast day was a perfect backdrop for the vibe of it.Like tendrils reaching into the sky. Standing as a silent sentinel to the passage of time.Always thought I'd write a story to go with it, but it never came to me. So, the image speaks for itself...

    Nature is just so much fun,

    and even though I'm not the most physically fit person in the world, who doesn't enjoy a scenic vista and brisk hike? :P I just wish there were more nature-y things to see around Chicago. I want mountains and deserts and giant trees and stuff :P Not just beaches and fields...

    Since I Was Young

    Maybe because I am older and technology wasn't where it is today, I always found my enjoyment being outside rather than inside. There is just something about fresh air and being outside that soothes the soul to me. Whether it was camping with my family or camping with friends...

    I love the outdoors. Truly calms me

    and makes the stress of everyday life go away. The wilderness is my church and the place is truly find a sense of peace. It's simple and not demanding.

    I'm a natures girl, I love to get down

    and dirty. I know most girls aren't so I go on adventures through the forest myself most times. All my friends ditch me cause they're those type of girls who are on their phones all the time but it's whatevs. NATURE ❤️

    Shaking off winter's goosebumps from my skin,

    I sail away, into the wide open seas! With a heart full of adventure, I arrive on the shores of paradise..Only to find you there!Come, we shall lounge in warmth..And you shall never be cold again..

    Today I went on a long hike through the forest,

    and crossed the creek over fallen trees. I saw an owl. Being alone and breathing in the scent of the pines and grasses just gives me that tingly sensation all over. You know that feeling.

    I kind of hate the environment

    that I live in.. Not my home, but what's around it. Nothing but stores, buildings, schools, roads, cars.. I wish I was somewhere closer to nature..where there's no sounds of cars or trains.. Just the birds and the wind.. I wish I had a calm, relaxing place outdoors to read..in...

    Sometimes I feel like it holds all the answers

    to every single question you have. One only needs to stop and listen. And the calm that you experience when you truly connect with nature is something wonderful.

    I work for the park service,

    so I spend most of my time outdoors. It's the perfect job for those who want to be out in nature. I get paid to wander through God's creation, watching nature at its best producing flowers and the off spring of new life filling the woods, creeks, and marshes. What a great job

    It's just nice, even

    when you have good company, to just go out and enjoy nature. ^^ You come back happy and refreshed. I lit this incense stick of Dragon's Blood (now my favorite, most resonating incense ^^) and had the most restorative sleep ever. it's lovely. ^^

    I really appreciate the difference between

    winter nights and nights in the other seasons. Is a different kind of dark, and the quiet always makes me hold my breath. No chittering insects, the birds and critters are tucked away somewhere hidden, and all the other sounds are muffled and absorbed by the snow. Some nights I...

    The Experience Of Walking Outdoors

    It's very beautiful outside tonight. I always think it's beautiful outside at nighttime though. I live in a part of the city where there are so very many trees, and a couple streams, and woodsy areas and little animals about. The sky is open and uninterrupted by tall buildings...

    I love camping with minimal gear,

    setting up my camp, gathering edibles and hunting for meat, gathering and splitting extra firewood and sitting back and enjoying the atmosphere. Waking up to those warm embers and starting the day again. Nothing else like it. The pic isn't my gear but similar to what I take...

    It feels so serene and peaceful,

    I would love to live in the countryside. I think men who are active and aren't afraid of a little mud and sweat are the most attractive

    My Sanctuary

    There is almost nothing I like more than being outdoors. Working in my garden or walking in the forest restores my soul. I like being a wanderer of the world. I literally feel myself recharge when I step into the forest. I'm fortunate to live close to the woods and it's magical...

    My view today =) Idk what it is

    but there's something about nature that brings peace to the mind. Is it the wind blowing gently and softly brushing up against the skin? Is it the birds chirping creating beautiful melodies? Maybe it's basking in the warmth of the sun kissing the skin ever so softly? Idk but...

    or more than most. I have met a few people on here who are as passionate as me about the out doors. I have one question to them and the rest of the community, Why is man spoiling it. I read and listen to people complain about trash in the streets and parks...pick it up..bend...
