Nature has always been an escape for me…

“Nature has always been an escape for me. Growing up in Boy Scouts and in my small town, I was always outdoors. Every time I am out in nature, I experience a wave of awe along with strong feelings of physical and emotional spirituality. Nature is the oldest thing on Earth and needs the upmost preservation and conservation in order for generations to experience the same waves of awe.”
