As I grew up, I loved being outdoors and being one with nature. There is nothing else like nature to put my mind at ease on those exhausting days. Every year I would go on camping trips throughout California, from Yosemite, to Lake Tahoe, to Lake Cachuma, and many others. Each location has their own climates, their own ecosystem, their own personalities. It is amazing to witness Mother Nature at work, and it does nothing but soothe my heart and beautifies my world. We all need a break from the city, our jobs, and especially our technological life. Being in touch with nature is like being born again.
