    It's the only place I can be truly free.

    I'm so comfortable outside. At the moment I am outside and it's so beautiful. It's nice and quiet and the sun is going down. The picture is the sunset from where I am.

    It is winter here and all

    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 ❤️

    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...

    A walk in the woods helps me relax

    and release tension. The fact that I'm dragging a body should be totally irrelevant.

    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...

    There's just something about being in the

    natural world barefoot and realizing the beauty she beholds. Take it in with all my senses. Align the mind and body with what is real.

    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

    As a child I remember the dark winding roads of

    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.

    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.

    Lilacs are out now where I live.

    .. What do they remind you of, and what do they smell like to you? I think they are intoxicating. It depends on how hot or cool the day is, and how mature the lilac is. Sometimes they smell fresh and crisp like a grape jellybean, the last one left in the Easter basket, lol...
