Last week I was camping in the Northern Highland American Legion State Forest, one of my favorite places to experience the outdoors.
It was the first time I’ve been camping since last August. Because of my home situation over the past 6 months (moving, fixing up the house I bought) most of my vacation time has been spent doing those things.
Finally camping after a year’s hiatus only reinforced how important is is for me to get to the outdoors on a regular basis.
There is nothing like laying in your sleeping bag and hearing loons call at night, or biking/hiking through beautiful woods and lake shores. The experience of those kind of things are definitely food for my soul.
