My recent trip to Colorado Springs, CO was when I first discovered my love for hiking. My hiking trip at Garden of the Gods was definitely a life changing experience that I would never forget. During my transition of moving to Atlanta, I got so consumed living in such a big city, I totally forgot that the most beautiful creation by God is nature.
The wonderful feeling of being out in nature, away from the big city, disconnected from technology allowed me to connect with nature in a way that brings about peace and a sense of well-being that I never wanted to let go. Hiking has become my best medicine, giving me a place to escape from all my problems, be free and to clear mind. Even though it was a challenging experience, I was able to leave with a high dosage of determination and motivation for my next hike. The love and respect I’ve gained from hiking have grown into one of my best hobbies that I will continue to share with the world.
