I had a great weekend showshoeing and backcountry snowboarding!
All of us have things we do on the weekends or when we're away from work to relax and have fun.
For me, there's something so fulfilling and energizing about getting out to the wildnerness and going on adventures! There was a time this weekend as I was hiking up Steven's Peak where I started to think about why I enjoy the outdoors so much. The thought hit me that a major part of it has something to do with being out in an area where things are HUGE. I get the same feeling when I'm by the ocean. When I'm in places like this, it puts life in perspective and I start to feel very small compared to my surroundings. My stresses or problems start to feel that way too (small). I begin to rest, feel recharged and realize that life is good. Being out of cell service and away from all the daily tasks and duties also helps!
What do you like to do? What recharges you?
