I spent a few hours biking through Wheeler Wildlife Refuge this morning.
I love being in the woods, surrounded by nature, and the only sounds I can hear are birds singing. The woods are my happy place.
Rainbow Mountain is located in Madison, Alabama, and has several different hiking trails for visitors to explore. The trails are steep, rocky, and narrow at times. However; the scenery is exquisite.
While I was exploring Rainbow Mountain, I thought about a quote by Vincent van Gogh:
If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere.
Reading the book, What’s the Difference by Marc Tyler Nobleman, was really fun. The title and cover page do a good job at explaining the purpose of the book.
Here are a few examples:
I found a stink bug on the window screen today. Stink bugs have glands that excrete a foul smelling liquid, which is used as a defense mechanism against predators.
When it comes to stink bugs, I use a live and let live type policy. I have no desire to experience that horrible smell.
I personally prefer living in the country. I love the peacefulness and the feeling of being close to nature. I like having a lot of space between me and my neighbors.
Which do you prefer living in the country or living in the city?
I took these pictures yesterday in Madison, Alabama.
