But one afternoon, after a shitty day I just said fuck it, did some research and found a trail that was within an hour of the city and for beginners. I wasn’t able to finish the trail that day, it felt like it went on forever and I chickened out thinking I would get lost. But I still enjoyed the experience and decided I would do it again. It wasn’t until a year later I was able to fully hike a trail and get the payoff of the amazing views. Being out in the woods. I was born and raised in NYC so even though I really wanted to experience these things it always seemed so inaccessible and scary.
Thank you for the award! I’m super proud for my first award on Reddit to be a tree hug award 🙂 and anyone reading thinking they want to try outdoor sports, please do! The planet needs more advocates to protect its beauty. Just brush up on the policy of leaving no trace before heading out there to minimize our impact on these beautiful places. When in doubt just remember “Take only pictures and leave only footprints”
