When Nature Calls

It's always necessary for me to get away from the city after a few months. I've discovered in the past couple of years that I'm a wood nymph at heart, and I feel most at home when hiking through rocky terrains with blue skies above and alpine views in the distance. These are the moments that I treasure the most - exploring the great outdoors with dirt underfoot and fresh air in my lungs.

As many of you know from following along on instagram, I escaped the city and traveled out to the Catskills this weekend to Palenville, not too terribly far away from another cabin stayed at in Mount Tremper. I love this region because of the off-roads feel to it - the lack of cell service and the scattered "towns" (if you can even call them that) make for peaceful solitude, something that's pretty high on my list for things to seek out while on vacation. And, of course, Palenville did not disappoint. Snow-fed waterfalls peppered along swirling mountain roads, endless amounts of scenic overlooks with not one single skyscraper in sight - some city-dwellers may find it eerie being so far away from civilization, but for those of us who crave clean air and greenery in order to recharge our batteries, this is some kind of heaven indeed.

I wanted to share some pictures from the trip tonight - a little Sunday evening treat. More to come, (obviously), but can you honestly blame me for wanting to relive it all before re-entering the concrete jungle on a Monday morning? Nah, I didn't think so.

Happy Sunday, hippies! Sweet dreams.
