Hiking, Waterfalls and Berries

When I was younger, my childhood smelled like summer. The freshness of trees, earthiness of the dirt, the crisp smell of water and the sweetness of berries. I was always outside. Running around a forest or skipping around a lake. Maybe that’s why, as an adult, I love hiking. I do it not only to immerse myself in the tranquility of nature, but also because it helps me stay fit. Below are the latest pictures of my hiking adventures. Enjoy!

The whole hike took about two and a half hours, but time really does fly when you’re surrounded by the beauty of nature. If you’re looking to spice up your workout regime with a bit of fun or adventure then I definitely recommend hiking. You can always start with 30 minute hikes and build your way up to a couple of hours (or what ever you are comfortable with).

Thanks for stopping by 🙂 I hope you enjoyed!
