“Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread. A civilization which destroys what little remains of the wild, the spare, the original, is cutting itself off from its origins and betraying the principle of civilization itself.”
― Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire
Yesterday, we took our little family out on a much needed hike.
We packed the kids around (freeloaders) and wore crazy shoes.
The boy kicked up dirt and climbed on rocks. (Supervised of course.)
And Ellen enjoyed being in the wrap for a couple of hours. (Probably brought back fond memories of her former home.)
Hope you didn’t get too bored of all our green posts this week. We’ll be getting back to normal posts again, but don’t be surprised if we pull out the green soapbox now and again 🙂
