Hiking Is More Than Physical

This photo reminds me of an article that I read during the weekend. Jeff Alt, author of Get Your Kids Hiking: How to Start Them Young and Keep It Fun!, sees “a good walk outdoors as an elixir for much of what ails folks and a means to connect with nature while maximizing family time away from the distraction of modern life.”
We couldn’t agree more.
Looking at this photo of RW trip leader Staffan Björklund, I’m reminded that hiking means something different to different people. For some people, hiking is an antidote to modern day life. For others, it’s meditative. At the very least, hiking is healthy and restorative. It’s also a great way to discover something new, (about the outside world and within ourselves).
Do yourself a favor this summer. Lace up your boots, grab your walking stick(s) and go for a hike. Better yet, grab a young one and get them hooked on hiking too! There’s no better time to introduce the next generation to the beautiful world they stand to inherit.
