Nature Time

I’ve been so busy this summer with writing and the whole slew of other things going on in my life that I haven’t had the chance to do any hiking. Typically, during the summer I go backpacking and hiking, however, that hasn’t been a luxury this time around. But I went on a hike yesterday. Finally! At least I got one outdoor adventure this season.

It was enjoyable to get away from noise of the hustle and bustle, to have some sort of break from life.

I loved the rushing, free-flowing sound of waterfalls and the river. The stillness of environment was much needed. And it felt like an achievement once I got back to civilization.

What do you do to get away from life for a while?

  1. That's beautiful. Nothing like that around here. There's nothing I can really do to get away from life, but I'd love to do something like that. So gorgeous.

  2. It's a good thing I don't live where you do-if I did I would get no work done whatsoever.

  3. I love hiking as well, but we haven't done it much this summer. What great photos.

  4. Wow, that is BEAUTIFUL! I've never been to Utah. Guess I need to go! My getaway is the beach. I'm about a 30-minute drive from sand and sea. I love the ocean.

  5. Evie - you should come play in Utah. Great sites like those above.

    Susan - you'd get work done--just not a lot. haha

    Patti - It is so tough being an adult sometimes. All work and no play. I must be a dull girl! haha

    Julie - Come to Utah. But I would love to live by the beach. Sigh. Could use some basking in the sun right now.
