When people used to ask me what my hobbies were I never really knew what to say. I was so involved in so many different things I really never knew which one was my chosen favorite. Twenty-one years later, I've finally discovered a distinguished, unique hobby. My hobby is soul-searching. It may sound odd but my type of soul-searching is so much better than walking down a sandy beach at sunset. My soul-searching is adventurous outdoor expeditions. It isn’t always necessarily hiking, or canoeing, but the nature walks I go on are my way of peace. To me, soul-searching is taking a break, relaxing, and taking a moment out of life’s craziness to take in how beautiful the world is.
A couple weekends ago I made a trip to Cummin’s Falls. It was by far one of my more vigorous hikes given that I fell on slippery rocks around 7 times. This trip was without a doubt the best soul-searching trip I’ve been on in a long time because I had 0 phone signal, but a whole 2 hours of amazing views. Being able to sit down my phone, take in the beautiful falls, and take a breather from my stressful duties, and unwanted assignments was much needed. The pictures from the journey capture moments of challenge, relief, and beauty that I experienced throughout the 3 mile haul down the river and rocky cliffs.
