Humans and Nature

As a human being, I do find it important that I do get out in nature frequently so that I can reset my priorities and commune with God and his creation.

As a young man, I would try to take a week or two up in the White Mountains of New Hampshire to get ‘real’. I would do hiking and trail running. I recall my first time solo on Mount Washington. My parents had given me a membership in the Appalachian Mountain Club. I wanted to get some experience so as not to be a total ‘noob’. I climbed up through the snow to the summit of Mount Washington, and then started down to the Great Gulf Wilderness on snow. I didn’t have any mountaineering equipment. I slipped and glissaded on my tuckus for 3000 feet grabbing onto branches sticking through the snow and slowing to a stop. I camped in the Great Gulf after changing my underwear. I hiked out the next day.

It’s March now in Southern California. I like to take the opportunity when I can to take walks in the local mountains to continue to commute with nature and enjoy God’s creation. It’s green here now. In a few months the mountains will be brown due to the drought.

God Bless America, please.
