First this is first, I realized when I wrote the title above there is a company named Nurture with Nature but that is not what this post is about. This post is about taking time out of the day or week to enjoy nature and get away from the busy city life or, in my case, away from technology, with the exception of my GoPro Hero Session and at first my phone before I put it back in the car.
I visited the Altama Plantation WMA today at approximately 1020 this morning. I did drive around to find a spot and it took about 20 minutes. Once this spot was found, I parked my car off to the side of the dirt driveway and walked around the area to finally find a spot that I could sit and take in the sounds of nature. It was calming and I sat there for 2 hours closing and opening my eyes. I wanted to stay longer; however, I needed to come back home to pull food out for dinner.
On the other hand, before I went home I stopped at 2 locations to hunt for caches (geocaching.com). Both of them were relatively easy to find compared to some that I’ve run across in the past.
