Today was one of those days where your lungs crave the subtle sting of fresh, cold air, the type that only a winter breeze can satisfy.
After my classes, I found myself instinctively driving to one of my favorite hiking locations, as I approached the familiar sign, “Welcome to Cave Run Country!” I knew I couldn’t be stopped. Nature is the best kind of addiction, one that I never wish to be rid of. I got out of my car and began the trek down a trail that I had blazed a thousand times over, when I decided that it was time for a change. While a lake view is something I can never tire of, I just felt the need to go to a place of higher elevation. I was lead to Lockegee Rock, which I found to be a more daunting task than my floral Doc Martens could manage. Most of the snow from the previous days had decided to melt away, leaving the trail to be a wetland invaded by unbearably large sink holes, that I’m sure lead to another dimension. But I couldn’t give up so soon, narrowly evading ocean sized puddles, I drove myself to another location, Clack Mountain. Now, if anyone knows anything about Morehead, Kentucky, they know the stories of Clack Mountain. Of how various cults sacrificed animals, and humans to what ever entity they chose to worship, that being said, I only stayed there long enough to snap a few photos, as I was by myself, and I was getting really negative vibes from the area. By that time, the weather had grown colder, and I decided to pack up and head home, happy with the time I spent, and also the photos I managed to get. Cataloging my journeys is much easier after I realized my phone actually is capable of taking quality photos!
As I’m newly managing two blogs, and proving to be insufficient to the cause, please hang in there, dear followers, while I compose myself. I’ll try to have some of my favorite vegetarian/vegan recipes up tomorrow, and maybe I’ll have a little winter photo-shoot! In the mean time, submit some of your nature adventures, or recipes! Also, if you have any suggestions, or comments about my blog or my mission, please drop them in my ask box, and I’ll respond as soon as humanly possible.
