Nature trails are one of my favorite places to go. They're a journey and a destination. It's these trails that I travel to get to some of my favorite places, and at the same time they are some of my favorite places.
You can accomplish many things by walking along these trails. As you travel through these wilderness walkways, you get to see all of nature in action. You can see just about everything right from the trails. Going here and breathing the air can be one of the most enjoyable experiences you could ever have.
You can go in here to get rid of several negative emotions. Stay in the forest for even an hour or two and you'll come out feeling much better. Anger or sadness or anxiety can melt away. I know this for sure. I've used these trails to help with all three and more.
Even if you're feeling just fine, walking along trails like these is a fun outing you can have whenever you want. You can go alone or even go with your family or friends, or even your dog sometimes. This nice quiet exercise is good for everyone.
The best part is that you can walk through these trails any way you want. If you want to walk through them as fast as you can so you can get your heart pumping, you can do it that way. You can also take it slow and look at every little thing along the way. Whatever you want to do. You are the master out here.
The trails in these pictures are the ones I visited all day yesterday. This is a huge nature preserve and it took me several hours to get through. I wasn't in much of a hurry so I stopped to see as many things as I could. There weren't many animals out there today, but I was more interested in just taking in the beauty of my surroundings.
I walked up and down hills just for the fun of it. I stopped and sat on benches so I could look around at the trees or wait for a few birds to come closer. I explored every side trail to see where it went. I crossed bridges that went over a ravine, and I even followed a steep trail that went to the bottom of that ravine.
All of this gave me a full day of enjoyment, and my troubles didn't exist while I was there. When I got too tired to want to continue, I walked back to my truck and finally went home. I was exhausted from my journey, but it left me completely satisfied. It also left me too tired to stay awake, so these trails gave me a nice long sleep.
So that's what I'm doing right now. Sleeping. I'm having good dreams of all of the things I saw, and all of the things I'll get to see next time on these nature trails. I'll talk to you then.
