I was having a relatively shitty day at work, feeling depressed, and just all around dissatisfied. So, I decided to do something that I’ve wanted to for a long time now: start hiking again. I use to hike and travel with my family all the time, but since we moved back to the states we haven’t really taken the time to do so.
Ever since I moved to Colorado, I’ve enjoyed the landscape and have been meaning to explore, and today was just the kick in the pants I needed. I went out, bought a hiking backpack, loaded it up with some water and my sketchbook and just started exploring trails. It was immensely satisfying and life affirming. Though I didn’t actually get to sketching, I was inspired. I felt connected to nature and was once again reminded why I’m so drawn to landscapes and environment design. Now I just need to put that inspiration to good use.
I look forward to hiking more. Tomorrow I’ll be off to get proper hiking shoes and decide on appropriate attire before heading back out to further explore some of these trails.
