Why go hiking?

The canyon over the hot springs of Aridaia.
There is something almost magical to hiking and camping in the forest. You get a sense of belonging and spiritual tranquility that's hard to find these days in our cities of concrete, noise and pollution. Travelling the woods is not about being a fitness fanatic. Hiking in mountain forests is something that always excited me and has been something that lingered from the army days in the special forces. My goal is to encourage more people to walk the forest paths , always with respect to the natural world that surrounds us and with the best preperation that i can think of...There is an old greek saying that translates as "if you prepare, you will take care...". So to tackle the first step of going out into the real world....
