I’ve always considered myself to be a pretty indoorsy person. I enjoy my bed, my couch, my room, my roof. I enjoy living a mosquito free lifestyle. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I truly love sunbathing next to an ocean or taking a leisurely stroll outdoors, or sitting on my porch. But I’ve never been such an adventurous outdoorsy person. However, the other day, a friend asked me if I wanted to join her on a hike and I said, surprisingly, “yes.” It was great. 5.2 miles of pure nature, pure clean air, pure non-indoorsyness (I apologize for making up words, I don’t think bloggers are supposed to do that).
Anyways, I actually enjoyed it. And coincidentally, my dad is “training” for a 14-er that he has to do with his co-workers and all of their summer interns. I put “training” in quotations because he’s not really training, he’s just practicing so that he doesn’t embarrass himself in front of his intern. So this past weekend he asked me to accompany him on a hike at the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. I didn’t actually want to go because his plain entailed waking up at 6 o’clock on a Saturday, but I agreed, and I’m so glad that I did! It was seriously so beautiful and worth the early call time.
I took a bunch of pictures, because while I might be outdoorsy now, I’m still addicted to technology. Enjoy the scenery through your computer. Hah, caught you, you’re actually an indoorsman too ;) Unless you're reading this post on your phone while thriving out in nature, then in that case that insult/comment is not meant for you.
