At least that’s what comes to mind when I think about what a hike is to me. Going into nature to forget about my problems to disconnect, to declutter my mind. Alone with myself. There is a sense of peace that washes over me as I listen to the rustle of the trees and the birds singing. At the end of my hike, I come out knowing myself a little more. Refreshed. Stronger. Already looking forward to my next hike.
