Appreciating Hiking

Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity

— John Muir, Our National Parks

It allows you to live so much simpler, IMO, even if just for a few days. When you’re backpacking on a trail or have just set up camp in the woods somewhere to hang out, everyone really has a chance to just be themselves and not worry about anything else going on back at home or work or wherever. There’s no drama, no bickering (not much at least), just people having a good time enjoying what life should really be about – enjoying good company and exploring the world around us.

On top of that, I love having the chance to see things that not many people, in the grand scheme of things, do. Sure, maybe tens to hundreds of thousands of people (possibly even more for the really popular places) have used some of the same trails as me, that’s a drop in the bucket compared to how many people have lived or visited nearby and never took advantage of the natural world around them.

I could spend every minute of every day among the trees and it wouldn’t be enough. Every time I finish a hike or return from a camping trip I start planning out when the next time I can go is.
