Stay Tuned …

My sister-in-law, Liz, posted a link on Facebook to an article titled “Doctors Tell Us How Hiking Can Change Our Brains”.  Here is an excerpt from the article:

“Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves,” wrote John Muir in Our National Parks. Clearly, John Muir understood the intrinsic value of spending time in nature.

Along with Muir, many of us recognize that hiking in nature is good for the body, mind, and soul. Walking through the woods while observing colorful birds and foliage, smelling the aroma of spruce and pine trees, and listening to a soothing running stream simply clear our mind and make us feel good.”

Sleep deprivation robs the senses of such enjoyment.  I made the decision today to return home to see my doctor and figure out why I’m not sleeping after hiking 12 to 15 miles per day!

I’ll keep you posted,

    Understand completely. There’s no place like home. And I know this: Whether you’re on the A.T. or not, your journey will continue, and in some manner or other . . . we will follow. Thanks, Chief, for being the most unpretentious friend we have. Very rare these days.
