Save Our Earth

Nature comes in all shapes and sizes.  For some, it’s the trees outside their apartment or the plant they may or may not remember to water.  It could be the flowers peeking through the snow on the east river trail or a reservoir in the park.  To others, it’s vast lakes and rivers, coastlines and mountains.

Growing up, I took for granted the weekend trips to the beach, weeks we spent skiing or hiking in Mammoth Mountain, and all the other glorious trips I spent outdoors.  Despite the fact that I live and work relatively near Central Park, I don’t have the opportunity to immerse myself outside as much as I used to.

~ Los Angeles may be overly smoggy, but on a fine day, you can spot the Pacific Ocean out in the distance.  This is one of my favorite hikes back home, an easy 3 mile jaunt, perfect for catching up with friends or getting rid of stress after work. ~

So today, on Earth Day, take a moment to appreciate the world around you.  Think about how we can make it a better place for the present as well as the future.

  1. Love this Kaitlin! Now…I need to go visit where you grew up in Cali (I will be over Labor Day actually to run the Disneyland Dumbo Double Dare!). Because I love nature, but I have a feeling I’ve never seen anything like Southern California. My nature is all Central Park and New England backwoods 🙂
