I’d rather be a forest than a street

El Condor Pasa (If I Could) by Simon and Garfunkel was a great song to highlight in the film Wild (although read the book; it’s better). I’m particularly drawn to these lines of the song:

I’d rather be a forest than a street
Yes I would
If I could, I surely would
I’d rather feel the earth beneath my feet
Yes I would
If I only could, I surely would

It encapsulates what I feel about the outdoors, being in the forest, and hiking. Below are some photos of mine that capture how I feel about nature. There’s something about being by yourself, but yet not feeling alone, that I really love. That’s what draws me outdoors.
