Ahh the splendors of nature...

What is it about nature? Something about feeling the sun on my skin and breathing that fresh air brings out my inner cavewoman. My internal instincts are allowed to take over and I turn into a wild harpie (reference: Ronia the Robber’s Daughter)…out to explore, conquer, or at least find something worth taking a picture of. I just can’t get over that feeling…of…what is it?...ahh yes, freedom. No clocks to tell you to get going, no horns honking at you, and no concrete to hurt your feet.

Do you know what I’m talking about? I often catch myself thinking of these things while I’m sitting at my computer all day. So when my mind is screaming “FREEEEEDOM!”…and 5 o’clock rolls around, it’s time for me to get outdoors.

Under the wild blue yonder…

Where I can practice my Indian call, hike at my own pace and let my imagination wander.

Where I can do whatever I want! Explore anything I come upon and capture the beauty seen by my own eyes.

Where I can freeze a moment in time, never to be seen again.

Isn't it grand, this feeling? Knowing that you are seeing something that will never be the same?

I love nature and all it has to offer us...we just have to get off the couch, strap on those dusty hiking boots & actually...yes, I mean it...cross the threshold of your house and start exploring!

"I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in."  -- John Muir

All pictures were taken by me, in good ol' North Dakota!


  1. Wonderful Cheyanne. And soooo true! Get out there people!! Explore!!!!

    I wish we were exploring something together soon. Can we make this happen?

  2. Very true! You are such a wise girl @ the ripe ol' age of 23! Love the pictures...very pretty! We need to get together soon!

  3. Beautiful! You echo my feelings about hitting the trails. There is nothing like grabbing your camera and sucking in that fresh air to, yes, see things that will never again be the same. Love your blog.
