awesome, husky - both the scenery - and the "place" you are in your head!

i especially like the 2nd shot - is that snow? not the typical beauty of a calendar or post card photo - but rugged and natural and unspoilt.

How long, LORD, must I call for help, but you do not listen?
Or cry out to you, “Violence!” but you do not save?
Why do you make me look at injustice?
Why do you tolerate wrongdoing?...
Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never prevails....

Hi Husky. Beautiful photos man! I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. I like to take a nature hike/jog once every few weeks myself. There is a national park not far from where I live and I love it up there. Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park it's called. Although, around here, calling it a "nature" hike is kind of a relative term. It's in the middle of the suburbs, not far from the city, normally crowded, lots of tourists, etc, but still nice. There is nothing like working up a good cardio sweat on the way to the top, then just sitting there, looking out at the city and letting the wind blow through your hair. The city looks and seems so quiet and peaceful from up there. Almost like it's in suspended animation. It's kind of surreal. I feel so at peace up there. My problems and stressors seem so far away. They can not touch me. Sometimes, in that moment, I wish I could freeze time and stay in that moment forever. I feel reconnected with myself, and it feels beautiful. Take care. Peace,


PS: I didn't take this pic and it obviously doesn't hold a candle to the natural beauty of your pics but it was taken from the top of Kennesaw Mtn, the spot I love so much, so here it is.....

Love the pictures!

I took a 2,100 mile solo hike before I started college---the Appalachian Trail. Every step is ingrained in my memory...the rainy Smokies, the flat vistas of Virginia...the boulder-strewn Northeast and the isolation of Maine. 5 months with only one goal will shape your thoughts for sure. This was the early 90s before smart phones and digital cameras...therefore I have no pictures other than the ones in my memory.

Keep it up.


I've got this life
And the will to show
I will always be
Better than before

I hike whenever I can. I get out to the mountains as often as I'm able, but sometimes I can't wait for that and just have to go on a long urban/suburban hike.
Nothing there. It subsumed me. Black hole in time and space.

And yet.

It seemed like what I was made for.

to be used.

most natural thing in the world.

Thanks for sharing Concerned Husky - This is inspiring and not just the view.!!!

This is the hand I've been dealt, and it's a game that must be played. What else is there? There are opponents, naturally. They're pretty formidable. I'm outnumbered, but I can beat them. Yeah...I can beat them. And I will beat them.

I did not know you could be pensive in a good way....but now I see it.


More than meets the eye!

Husky, awesome idea about taking a hike, just to be alone with nature and to sort out stuff without noise or distractions. Beautiful pics too. Thanks 4 sharing!

Hi Guys,

What you guys are doing seems really relaxing. It feels like whenever you get emotionally exhausted hiking does really help... I wish I could do that.

I would go for a walk sometimes, but I ended up feeling lonelier..
