    I feel that I could seclude my self in the

    woods, mountains. Anywhere that is green, without society, and modern day technology and I'd have the best time of my life. Because all one needs is the Mother Earth and a good soul to succeed!

    Absolutely love being outdoors!

    !! Minnesota is beautiful, as is Wisconsin. Anyway... hiking, fishing, four wheeling, snow mobiling.... The list goes on and on! I don't understand how people can not love and appreciate how beautiful nature is.

    Love It!

    I love being outdoors and being in nature. Hiking and camping are both really fun as well as just hanging out in the woods, by a lake, at the beach, or by a river. I love nature and natural settings. I try to go to nature spots as often as I can.

    I heard today that plants

    that look like a human organ is a medicine for that organ. A plant that looks like an eye will cure dis ease in the eye, for example, carrot. Does it not look like an eye, well the shape?

    I love to go wandering in the wilds of the New

    Forest which is so close to our town, and almost adjacent to our house. I go walking there for hours, sometimes never seeing another person the whole time I'm there! I have often taken off all my clothes as I walked, and I feel the air on my body. It's such a delight! As...

    Something about going out on a hike relaxes me

    more than anything in this world. Being outside climbing climbing hills and trees makes me forget every problem. I feel as if I'm completely alone in the world. I hear no noise. Just nature.

    I love bushwalking. I have been to some amazing

    places in Tasmania and Victoria that took my breath away. I enjoy sitting close to waterfalls watching the environment and listening to the sound of the river. Just everything together puts me into a meditative and relaxing mood.

    A Fleeting Moment Of Serenity

    It's nice to just go down by the lake and forget about everything that's happening in your life and in the world. Just focus on yourself a little bit, reflect, relax and partake in a beautiful fall day! Life has a few simple pleasures, but this is one of them!

    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

    The Experience Of Walking Outdoors

    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.

    than being outdoors enjoying nature! I love hiking, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, hiking, grillin', chillin' at a bonfire or just sitting on the deck with a nice cold brewskie! Which is exactly what I'm doing tonight! Love living out in the country! How about you?

    When nothing feels real, the earth is there- dirt and rocks underneath my feet, the breeze brushing through my hair, the feel of water's silkiness in my hands. I feel like a kid again. When I feel like there's no point to life, I get outside and find purpose in appreciating...
