While I was traveling to Indiana, I stopped at Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky.
It was a great place to get out, stretch, and enjoy a hike with my dog. The landscape was breathtaking. I also found an old cemetery while I was exploring the park.
If you enjoy being outdoors, put this on your vacation list. You will not be disappointed.
I go into the woods alone, to sit in silence and listen. I hear birds singing, bugs chirping, and the wind rustling through the leaves. I can smell the freshness in the air. The longer I sit the more at peace I feel. I am becoming one with the nature around me. I feel a longing to connect with the animals that hide or scurry about. I close my eyes, and let all the stress leave my body. In that moment, all feels right with the world. That’s why I go into the woods.
Amazon has Advanced Wilderness Navigation by Jack Perry available as an ebook for free. Before reading this book, you will need know how to use a compass and read a topographical map.
The book is short and to the point. However, it is full of useful information. It is easy to read and easy to understand.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys hiking, camping, or other wilderness activities.
