    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 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...

    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

    I love living on the coast

    so much. Simple things like driving winding roads, through forests of tall gums, sunlight dancing through the trees illuminating, bark & leaves. Reminding me how small we really are. Then I get home in time to watch the huge sets roll in over the bay, as the sun sinks into the...

    A city dog Barks at my music.

    And me checks for what noise is. And finds not nature. No owl. No campers humpin. No coyotes humpin. And posts on ep. Then a coyote howls. Seeking a mate. And the city dog shuts up.

    Yesterday, I took a walk along a local nature

    trail just to relax and unwind from a rather stressful day. Usually I take so many photos but only took a few as I was more concerned with taking in my surroundings rather than photographing them. I enjoyed the sights and sounds of the birds, deer, rabbits, herons and the...

    My view today =) Idk what it is

    My passion for the outdoors prompted my move to

    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 just saw a huge pillar of clouds,

    and at the very top was a halo - the literal silver lining - and in it was the rainbow spectrum all around the cloud, it was most beautiful thing I've ever seen!

    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...

    Spring unbound itself from the hold of

    winterQuietly slipping out of it's graspTeasing and tauntingSwelling, and opening, and bursting forthSpreading her colorful mantle over theundulating landscape...But alas, she awoke to feel the cool sting of winter on her fresh surface!One last reminder of it's dominance.
