Being alone in the wild isn’t scary. I’m familiar with my surroundings and I’ve taken all the safety precautions necessary. It is where I am most at peace with myself and my life. The solitude provides a respite from the self-inflicted stress I allow in my life.
I love the feeling of being a tiny speck on the vast landscape of a mountain. The scale reminds me of how vast and wonderful this world is and how grateful I am to explore it.
