“My first hike of the year was the 3-mile loop called Jupiter Mountain in the Angeles National Forest in Santa Clarita, California. I hiked in just before sunset and discovered no cell service at the trailhead. I was able to take in the sights and sounds of nature with no distractions. At the peak of the mountain is a bench where I was able to stop and breathe in the fresh air and take in the beautiful landscape.”
“I captured this photo after hiking the Sandankyo Gorge in Hiroshima, Japan. This adventure allowed me to cross from the chaos of the world during the pandemic into my happy place in nature. This photo represents that cross-over from the civilized world into nature.”
“My wife is a yoga instructor and frequently does yoga with my kids. On this evening, we were catching the sunset at Theodore Roosevelt National Park and my daughter kept asking my wife for a piggy-back ride as she was practicing a few poses and taking in the scenery.”
