Last week I met up with a friend of mine to go for a walk while we spent some time together. We decided to walk on one of the Discovery Trails in the city as I had not yet walked on its path. I enjoyed walking under the lush green trees with her and listening to the sound of the insects communicating with one another.
During our walk, we came across a few bridges for both cars and trains. On this particular bridge, I noticed that some graffiti and street art had been painted on the walls.
I admired the lettering of some of it; but what I enjoyed seeing even more was the juxtaposition of the man-made steel against the natural green of the trees.
As we passed under the bridge and the reminder that man has encroached on the natural here, I looked forward to walking more on the trail that echoed with the reminder that nature is good for our souls.
My friend and I enjoyed our walk together. Not only did we have a good chat but we also spent some time exercising in a not often visited part of the city.
Do you enjoy walking on nature trails?
