Before my six month trip, spending a weekend in the mountains camping and hiking was the only thing that made me feel reconnected to everything around me. There’s just something about being so close to nature and earth for an extended period of time that forces you to remember where you’re living — on a beautiful planet teeming with life, not the carpeted, heated, sterile box that so many of us call home.

Speaking of camping and hiking, I think I need to plan a weekend trip! 🙂
