The Beauty of Creation

As most who read this blog know, I not only like to spend my spare time outdoors but the outdoors is also my office at work.  One might think that spending the majority of my waking hours outdoors would dull me to the grandeur that is God's creation.  The time I spend in the splendor actually has the opposite effect.  I find my self enjoying vistas, falls, and wild lands even more.

Natural Wonder

I find lately that not only do I enjoy the exercise of retrieving my own food from the earth and not paying a middle man at the grocery store, but I also feel like I am in the "real" world when I am away from town.  It may sound crazy but when I am on pavement, in buildings, or even at my home I feel that I am in a man made matrix and that I am only truly free when I am in the woods outside the confines of society.  I feel closer to God outdoors and even seem to think clearer.  Unlike some activities being outdoors seem to only bolster my desire to stay longer or go more often.  No one judges me when I am hiking.  I don't have to worry about how to pay for my accomadations when I am backcounty camping.  I prey others out their are enjoying the adventure of the outdoors as well. I will be, October and November are the two months I kill all the venison for the year. It is important time to me but it is also very enjoyable.  I dare say for the cost it is better than a movie and it is for real.  Your pal the Envirocapitalist.


  1. I know EXACTLY how you feel. Unfortunately, I gave up such a lifestyle 17 years ago. I will pay for it until the day that I die.

  2. Nice one.

    I'm paraphrasing here but it goes something like this
    " Some go to church and daydream of fishing, some go to the trout stream and daydream of god"

    Keep well
