 “The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.” John Muir
Anyone who watches me in any form knows that I am an avid outdoors person. Hike, bike, climb, paddle, swim…  Whatever form it may take, if it gets me outside I am all in. ESPECIALLY during COVID-19, I have found getting outdoors to be essential to my physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. Here are a few favorites and some hope-to-dos that might be a good dose of medicine to you as well.
