Mindful Echo takes a hike.
Hiking is one of my favourite pastimes. I love being able to escape into the trees for a while and just exist amongst the leaves, and dirt, and rocks, and water, and wind, and ... decomposing cars?
It's so confusing to me when I see this type of thing on a trail in the middle of nowhere. I have so many questions: Where did it come from? How long has it been there? And perhaps most importantly, how long is it going to be there?
I think it's a bit of a jolt back to reality to remember just how long all our human-made, manufactured items stay with us. Although by the same token, it's also a testament to the power of nature; how it can overtake and object and totally reclaim it. It's amazing.
Still, I'm sure we can all agree, it's much nicer to leave the cars behind so we can spend our hikes enjoying more of this:
What's the weirdest, most unnatural thing you've ever spotted on a hike?
