Nature Nerd Wednesdays

Welcome to Nature Nerd Wednesdays, your mid-week nature break to reconnect with the calming, refreshing, and inspiring effects of nature. Take a deep breath and enjoy...

Sauk Mountain: one of my summer adventures.

Summer is winding down, and along with it the long days spent outdoors hiking, biking, beachcombing, berry picking, and adventuring. As the days become noticeably shorter and we return back to work and back to school, memories of those blissful summer days spent in the sunshine leave us yearning for more adventures in the great outdoors.

And while there is no substitute for actually being out in nature, breathing the fresh air and stretching your legs in the company of leafy trees and chirping birds, I've found a great film that might be the next best thing. While through-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail is not within the realm of possibility for most of us (me certainly included!), you can experience this feat vicariously through the eyes of hiker Mac of Halfway Anywhere. He compiled one second of footage from each day he hiked the trail, and this fun video is the result:

Did you see the Redwoods of California? Could you tell on exactly which day he reached our lovely Evergreen State? While I'm not a fan of the music, I'm certainly a fan of the scenery. The west coast of the US is an ecologically diverse and beautiful place that we are so fortunate to inhabit!
