They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I’m not sure what that makes a video, but it’s a pretty big number. These clips each tell an amazing story of beauty and adventure.
Hiking is therapeutic on every level. Waking up early in the morning and tackling a handful of miles at your own leisurely pace while the sun slowly rises is a powerful experience. Watching the sun slowly fall to rest over the horizon after tackling a 2000 foot elevation going on a 9 mile day hike is like letting out a huge sigh of relief and accomplishment.
While the mountains and trails in your backyard are convenient and beautiful, seeing a place for the first time has a different feel to it. That feeling of “newness” is can only happen one time for every place that you visit and lucky for us there are a lot of places to visit.
