Photos by  David McMartin   A journey into the wilderness is great exercise. It’s an opportunity for friends to spend good time together and a chance to take a break from the details of daily life.  	Hiking the trails also offers a chance to see things you may never have seen before, or to view familiar things in an entirely new way. 	So, when you hit the trails, try looking around you with fresh eyes.

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.
