Hunting, fishing, hiking, geocaching, photography, mushroom picking (during the right seasons), foraging, teaching about flora and fauna in the areas where I am to folks whom are interested etc. Oh and making friends with the squirrels and chipmunks at camp...always have unsalted shelled peanuts for them. I have gotten quite of few of them to jump on my lap and pack their cheeks.

Living in Colorado we have the luxury of world class mountain biking and dirt biking.
I love getting out for a good ride to stretch the legs after being behind the wheels for hours on end!

Most of what’s been mentioned before, plus kayak fishing, plinking (or suppressed higher-caliber shooting), whittling, foraging, tightrope-walking, astral photography, bird watching, fossil hunting, metal detecting, canine recreation, kite flying, chess, and my personal favorite: reading a good book.
I know you can read a good book anywhere, but just like a good meal, for me it’s always better experienced out in nature.
We obviously don’t get to all activities every time we venture out, but usually at least a few depending on the situation.
Always looking to add more!

Wildflower searching and identification, birding, butterfly sighting/identification. Finding and following game trails as well as tracking along trails and stream sides - unless bear prints become evident and as mentioned earlier fungus (mushrooms and moss).

Since much of what I do is solo, listening to or feeling the breeze in the trees as weather fronts move is really high on the list - and a hammock helps there as well.

Living in the east (Appalachia) checking out water falls is also a "cool" pastime. (Pun intended)

When I've spent time in the SW deserts I used a guide book on Holes of the Desert to locate and ID various type critters and their preferred habits and hideouts... too much to see and do in nature to narrow the field to only a few activities.

Sometimes I find myself getting frustrated when I find a human shoe/foot print. Sad, I know... guess my best friend is mother nature and other folks presence seems to be a little disappointing.

Overarching everything is my love of being outdoors. I have always loved exploring, whether new hiking trails (when I was younger) or new overland driving routes (now that I'm officially a geezer). I'm an avid fly fisherman, so being able, and equipped, to go farther into the backcountry affords me the opportunity to access less crowded water and find more solitude. I've been fortunate to have traveled to many remote places around the world and have learned that with experience, planning and the right gear there are very few places one cannot get to. Where there's a will, there's a route.DSCF1143.JPG
