Nature Restores My Soul


“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.” John Muir, Scottish-American naturalist, author, and early advocate of preservation of wilderness in the U.S.  (1838-1914)

Our community is fortunate to have Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park nearby for both fitness and restoration.  Our yellow lab, Gracie and I took full advantage of this jewel a few days ago and just getting outside on a beautiful fall day did us both good.  As John Muir stated so eloquently here, “…my cares dropped off like autumn leaves.”

The park is filled with so many great trails. If you want to avoid the roots and rocks,  walk or jog on the mountain road. The road to the top of Kennesaw Mountain starts at the Visitor’s Center and is 1 mile each way.  This road also offers a challenging workout along with several spectacular long distance views.  You can stop by the Visitor’s Center at 900 Kennesaw Mountain Drive and pick up a Calorie Counter Hiking Map, checking out the historical museum while you are there.

Joining a girlfriend or two on the mountain is always a good idea!

Did you know?  Kennesaw Mountain was a physical barrier standing between a large Federal force and an important Confederate railroad and manufacturing center. The battle played an important role in a complicated national drama of bitter military combat and politics.

Where do you go to disconnect from the world and technology?

What place aids you in restoring your soul?
