Today was a bright & sunny Spring day, with a slight, cool breeze-the perfect weather for a hike. I’ve been wanting to go to Linda Falls since the beginning of Fall quarter but I just never got around to it. On Saturdays, I like to take a break from schoolwork and just rest. Hiking, being outside, and breathing fresh air sets my mind free. I let my thoughts wonder and just enjoy the sights and sounds of nature around me. Sometimes schoolwork and personal issues get overwhelming and make me feel like there’s never enough time to accomplish everything I need to do. After going on this hike and noticing how much better I felt afterwards, I decided to make an effort to make this a regular thing. If you find yourself stressed or overwhelmed, find the time to go out in nature and I promise you, you will feel so much better afterwards. It was nice to just breathe, refocus, and de-stress. This hike was long overdue!
