Hiking is a wonderful way to experience nature. My whole family likes to get involved. We often meet in Colorado to hike together. It is beautiful there. I got this picture on a trail in The Rocky Mountain National Forest about a mile up the trail from Glacier Basin.
It is just so relaxing to stroll down a trail, like this one in Asheville, NC, in the peace and quiet, when the primary sounds you hear are birds. An sometimes when you are very lucky Nature will grace you in a instant of supprise with an unexpected pleasure and you will meet the BlueBird of happyness.
Perhaps I will run into you somewhere on a future hike.
