I believe we need to get back to nature throughout the year to get some inner peace. Report
interesting article and comments Report
Good article. Report
Do you have any exercises that I can do in a chair? The reason is, I'm a right-leg, above-knee, amputee and I use crutches to walk with. It's hard for me to find ways to exercise. Thanks for all your help and may our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ bless you all. Report

And don't forget, September - February is hunting season in a lot of areas so be careful where you hike. Report
We live in a place where there are lots of greenways and state parks with great kicking trails. There is also a great national park four hours away with hiking. We love to get out and walk or hike. We enjoy the scenery and the animals, and we do it all seasons. I had surgery last year and my surgeon said that outdoor exercise is a must! Report
Great trail in Nevada City, California. Herschmann Pond trail off Cement Hill Rd, across from the large rock near the corner of Hwy. 49 Report

Now I know part of why I miss my Dad so much it was ussally with him I spent most of my time in the outdoors. Report
I just happened to find a new park the other day and took a walk on a trail. It was such a refreshing break after so long a time, and it rekindled all the calming, curiuos, and joyful thoughts I had from more carefree times past. You might say I renewed my friendships with the trees, flowers, and critters! Report
I felt very eager to just DO it when I read this. I often crave time far away from houses. But, I'm married to a spouse who doesn't care for the out-of-doors, and it doesn't seem prudent to do these things alone in one's seventies. Younger friends are too busy with jobs and family, older friends would think I've gone batty .... Hmmmmm. I think I'm talking myself into a carefully planned mini-adventure .... Report
Wow the article and comments make me want to get out and go!! I live in upstate N.Y. and I just love going to all the parks and walking my dog. Report
Even a day out in nature is wonderful. I can't camp out, but just a get-away on a walk with my dog, binoculars & a field guide does wonders any time of year. Lovely article! Report
That sounds wonderful. Wish I could make time for a fall campout, but between work and school I may have to settle for a weekend walk in the park! Report

My S.O. and I went car camping several times this year. It was so nice being surrounded by Douglas firs within sight of a lake. The campground allowed us to lazy float in our inner tubes by day and sit by the fire under the stars and really enjoy each others company at night. It is now too cold to float on the lake but we can still enjoy ourselves with a good hike and a few nights in a yurt or cabin. I love fall! Report

We love to spend time outdoors, but find it hard to camp out because of husband's illness. We love to camp in motels and enjoy day trips through parks. I hike and he people watches ! Report
