One of the times I have felt the most connected to nature was when I went hiking in Rocky Mountian national Park. My brother and I backpacked through a spectacular senic trail that curved around waterfalls on its acent up the mountain. During this trip one of the things that jumped out at me most was how tranquil nature is. When you are in a city your senses are constantly being bombarded by a plethora of harsh sounds. In the wild you can actually hear the birds and wildlife which you are seldom able to do in a bustling city. I was astounded how optimistic I felt after hiking through the national park and seeing the grand views that the Rocky Mountais offer. This experience has made a deep impression on me and I hope to repeat it again in the future.
