Realizing the beauty of the outdoor life. Once you realize how much the outdoor can give you, the love for it is ever growing. One of the reason that companies lead outdoor expeditions are so that the workers have an outlet to something other than a computer or a electronic. As a child it is unreasonable to permit or deny going outside to play. In the area that I live in, we are surrounded by nature. I live in the middle of nowhere in a small town with less than 10,000 people. There are more farms than houses. When I was in the third grade one of my mom's best friend's, from when she was young, daughter was getting married in Colorado in the middle of the summer. So our whole family went out The Centennial State for her wedding. The day after celebrations, my entire family went on a hike up a mountain just outside of Boulder, Colorado. The mountain was part of the National Parks Service. Inside the park there was this amazingly beautiful view overlooking a lake with the mountain in the background. There was only one thing on my mind and that was “Wow.” With the green trees and the blue water, off-setting the gray and white of the snow-capped mountain. I can honestly say that it was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. I love the outdoor life. It is my favorite thing about in the middle of the county. When my sisters and I were little we would go into the woods and go on a “adventure.” Since there are some marshy zones in the area that I live, we would always look out for the wet areas. I love traveling, especially to areas famous for outdoor scenes. On my trip to Colorado, it was truly the first time I experienced the beauty of nature.
