Why I Like Camping

Camping is an important part of our life; here's why we enjoy it so much.

My husband and I have enjoyed camping since we first started dating, over twenty years ago. Our first trip was with borrowed equipment from family. It stormed that trip, our tent flooded, and the raccoons ran away with our food, but we had so much fun! After that trip, we began to accumulate our own equipment, and now we have a simple travel trailer.

Camping is something we try to do as often as we can, even if it’s just for the weekend. It’s our favorite way to relax and forget about the demands of life. There’s nothing that needs to be done while we’re camping. We’re able to just be in the moment.

Introducing our daughter to camping and the outdoors has been rewarding. She loves it as much as we do. She has learned so much by being in nature. Every time we go camping, she asks the same thing, “are we going to climb a mountain?” Hiking is her favorite thing to do. The harder the better.

I also enjoy hiking. The more secluded, the better. To be away from the city and to me amongst the wildlife is my happy place. I enjoy the mountains the most. As I hike, I imagine what it must have been like to live in a time before concrete cities, and everyday luxuries we have now. I look for the places people would have hidden from storms, and I look for the places where you can just sit and take it all in.

Nature is beautiful. The more untouched by humans, the more beautiful it is. I love to watch the birds glide through the sky. Waking up to their song is the most peaceful wake-up there is.

When night comes, the bugs begin to sing, the moon and stars begin to shine, and I’m lost in the universe’s beauty. The endless stars and beautiful sky remind you just how little we are. It’s a reminder that there is so much more to see.

This is the world I love. The untouched world, where you can be lost in the beauty that surrounds you. No responsibilities, no demands, just you and the earth living in harmony. It’s great while it lasts and I am constantly pulled to see more and do more. Out in the wild is where I belong.
