I have been craving nature since returning to Boston, the way the brain turns off and you are simply a part of it all. I just stop thinking and absorb.
I am usually magnetically drawn to the ocean for nature, with the occasional hike in the mountains, and of course, weeks of skiing, but now I hope I will turn to inland more.
The cold this week was so intense that I knew there would be ice on the ledges in Franconia Notch, NH where I planned to hike, and poor Mia has a thorn in her paw, so I stayed local. And was wowed by the beauty of the nature just minutes from Boston. As always the moment you let yourself go and nature takes over, it impresses and humbles you. I need this daily!
