It’s not always big mountains and risky adventure that I’m constantly chasing rather it’s the feeling of being disconnected while focusing on being present in the moment to learn about and challenge myself.
Growing up in a big city this park in particular played a crucial role in my life when I was in my early 20’s. Anytime I felt anxious, stressed, unsure, restless, unhappy or just needed to get away from everything this is where I went. I haven't been back to visit in a long time but I still go here mentally quite often, thinking back to a transitional period where I took the time to really reflect on what’s important in life and appreciate the importance of being surrounded by nature.
