    Where I Am the Happiest..

    I can't stand to be cooped up indoors.  It's depressing to me.. Last weekend I went camping & I had the best time.  I love to take my quad out or go horseback riding.. The sun, wind, rain whatever wakes me up.  I feel so alive...  The bugs & dirt don't...

    I love being outdoors

    and I have a need for speed...:) Four-wheeling is one of my favorite things to do... I have a Polaris 800 and ride it everywhere.. Especially in the mud and water.. I'm not afraid to get dirty cause it's a blast.. I can strap an ice chest and a tackle box to it and head out...

    There is nothing more relaxing than a good hike or a rock climb. You get dirty and learn things, about yourself and nature.

    Summer is here. The outdoors beckons.

    Heed that call and you’ll reap physical and mental health benefits. Here are  good reasons to get outdoors: Your vitamin D levels rise. Sunlight hitting the skin begins a process that leads to the creation and activation of vitamin D. Studies suggest that this vitamin...

    Beauty And Nature

    I think it's weird that I love the outdoors

    but I spend so little time outside. I just love being outside in the fresh air and just listening to the birds and the noise the trees make in the wind. It's my favourite place (next to my bed)

    Summer In SF

    Now that summer is just about here the temperatures in SF are dropping. I'm relatively new to the area and I don't think I'll ever get used to it. I just stocked up on warm cycling gear so I don't freeze to death while I ride...in July and August. So weird, but sometimes fun.

    That Summer Grass Smell...

    So I've always lived near the beach or the bush, in all the moving I've done, until this year. This year I am actually literally across a main road from a big reserve, but there's a fence in the way and I am no longer with bushpeople. So the call of the trees and all the little...

    To feel the wind. To hike through the trees. It is the only place that can calm me.

    Glowing crescent in an inky black sky pricked

    with stars. Sharp cold. The sting of woodsmoke scenting the air. A dusting of snow in the grass sparkling in the pools of light. No birdsong to herald the new day. No golden haze on the horizon. Just the sound of my footsteps in the still dark. I can still smell the smoke on my...
