People like being outside. Most people. And for those that do, there is almost nothing better than watching the sun set from behind the massive mountain that you just spent an entire day tackling. The satisfaction, the glory, the accomplishment.
But how cool is it to have a friend right beside you, gazing in awe at the same incredible view, feeling the same surge of power and energy and achievement that you do. To be able to go back to that moment, together, any time you want. Reveling in that feeling, that energy.
It's good to create memories. It's human to share them--in books, in conversation, in the ever-prevalent social media feeds. We live to create that social bond where we can relate to one another through shared experiences and combined passions. Nature is one of the best vessels through which we can foster those connections.
And it doesn't have to be a high-altitude, 8,000 foot climb into the sky. Nor does it have to be the careful maneuvering of class 5 rapids or mountain biking a steep cliffside. It doesn't have to be tackling tsunami-sized waves off the coast of Mexico or soaring 3 miles from a plane strapped to an overly-energetic diving instructor.
But it can be.
Or it can be a gentle stroll through a park. Relaxing on a patio, listening to the rain dance on the rooftops. Cherry-picking on a summer day. Fishing the neighborhood pond. Playing hopscotch with your children. Chatting poolside with your friends at the water park. Searching for rainbows after a storm.
Sometimes the best views are the ones from your own backyard and sometimes the most memorable experiences are the spontaneous and unpredictable.
