‘ The Peace of Wild Things.’ ~ Wendell Berry
These last few weekends of summer have been phenomenal, and we’ve tried hard not to waste any of them! When things get crazy in the city, when the news becomes too much to tune into, there is tremendous solace to be found in nature. There are no agenda’s, no spin, no deadlines and no expectations other than to simply be present in the moment – you don’t need to be in despair like Wendell Berry to have a desire to connect or reconnect with nature!
We are so blessed in British Columbia to have such incredible beauty that takes your breathe away. Let’s save it, no? Because without places like these, where do we find our escapes, our solace and ourselves?
This slideshow contains just a few of the places and roads less travelled where I’ve managed to escape to this summer, all on day trips from Metro Vancouver.
