My husband and I are currently on our annual Easter road trip to the Smoky Mountains. It’s such a beautiful time to visit because all of the spring ephemerals are just starting to shine life and light into the beautiful mountain terrain.
We’ve seen so many beautiful flowers. It feels like such an honor to hike into these mountains and to take the time to notice the moment. To rest in the lushness of the mountainside. To hear the sound of endless rivers and streams, and seeing columbines bloom from the sides of cliffs from the road. I feel so blessed to be here.
We went on a hike called Chestnut Trail and saw so many beautiful flowers as we began the trek up the incline welcoming us on the path.
The Smoky Mountain national Park is one of the most bio diverse areas in North America.
It has so much to offer and it’s really a safe space for your soul to rest. Coming into nature is always so restful for me and I find that I often feel so grounded just breathing in the fresh air every day and watching the sunrise and sunset.
I find that nature is the best medicine for me and if something I wanna continue immersing myself in throughout my life. It seems that nature guides me into the present moment and allows me to really rest in that space which is so important for the mind body and soul.
What is your favorite natural place to be in?
