Columbia Visit: Part II-A Hike

I am constantly in awe at the nature that exists in the world we live in...
(like the way leaves layer over each other to create a magical patterned canopy in the sky)
I've always felt most at home in nature. I used to think I could live in the city, enjoying the bustling life of it all on a daily basis, but the older i've become, the further that ideal has shifted to the back of my mind. When Nick & I first met, we talked about how we would love to live in a simple cabin in the woods. One that we designed & built. One that we could go to & find complete solitude together. I will for sure live in a few busier places before our dream takes place, but i look forward to those days! I love living in suburbia, but there's something so special about the air & the sky in the emptiness outside of city.

I am, right now, in awe with nature around me.
I finally got to live in a super small town on the seaside inside the pine forest. I love it so much!!!
Here, I can share also a few of my leaves photos, looking up:

Tori, I completely empathize with you. I live in the bustle of Cincinnati and I belong in the woods. I am even thinking about switching my major to conservation, forestry, or agriculture.

What beautiful photos of nature. I totally agree that I often think I could live in a city and realize quickly that would be in possible.
