I absolutely treasure my time in the field. It is therapy and food for my soul. Three things jump out at me: 1-Fishing with my daughters in the spring. 2-Shed antler hunting in Feb.-March. 3-Sitting in a treestand with my bow on a crisp Nov. morning.

Just this afternoon I took my daughter shed hunting for about 45 minutes. We didn't find anything, but we were out, together. Not sitting in front of the t.v. She has briar cuts on her little hands and one on her cheek. I am so proud of her! These are the things that keep life in perspective...

One of my favorite time in the woods was with 2 buddies during H.S. We hiked into the woods about 5 miles and camped for 3 nights. We had to hike a few more miles to a trout stream to catch our breakfast. Nothing like fire-cooked trout for breakfast! Now, being in the Army, every time I get to the field it is an adventure.

Any time spent on my hunting property. Whether is it during the deer season or at other times of the year working on habitat improvement projects. Cooking over the campfire. Watching the sunrises and sunsets. Watching the wildlife, the deer, birds and even an occasional beaver in the creek.

mhambi, Is that you, or just a pic? That is absolutely beautiful!
RJ, I believe that life is definitely sweeter for those who aren't so hardened that they still notice sunsets.
Ian, your post reminds me of something that we used to do when we were kids. We'd pack our guns, fishing poles, tents, and gear. We'd take off into the woods for days and just live off the land. We called it "surviving";f That was before the days of deadlines, wives, kids, mortgages, etc...

it's not me in the pic but I've been there many times. This is where Imlay canyon exits from above into the North Fork of the Zion Narrows. The pic is of some hardcore canyoneers doing the last rap. I spent many a summer day in Zion NP. Good times... :)

One of my favorite hikes. Angels Landing. This is a pic of the 'Hogsback' 1500' straight down on both sides, sometimes only 4-5 feet wide. Offers nice views of Zion valley. :)

I spent a few days up in the Alagash Wilderness Waterway in Maine a few years back. We were flown in by a float plane out of Millinockett, the flight was an experience in itself. We canoed around 30 miles total. I have grown up around the woods, but this place is remote. If you ever get a chance to go, I would recommend it.

It was a trip of a lifetime.

Hiking far into a deep canyon. Large variety of vegetation around, and small animals available to shoot for foot. Follow a good sized creek or a small river through this canyon. Lot of places to explore, especially CAVES. Lots of rocks. Oh, just the thought of such a place... I must go... soon... becoming weak.

Smoky Mts, Tenn

Like that but more of a California type canyon.

Edit: mhambi, Where is that?!!!!

About 7 or 8 years ago I spent 8 days at Zion and Bryce.
The views are still with me.
It's beautiful country out there.

Sweet. I've been thinking of going to college in Salt Lake City when I get out of the Navy. If I like the area, I might stick around. That is the kinda territory I like to have around!

I like to be the cook when I am out camping. I have the camping dutch ovens and the cast iron skillets. I use the 10" DO for baking sourdough dinner rolls, bisquits, and cornbread. The 12" is generally used for making stews and sometimes chili. I also like to make peach cobblers for dessert.

Just to be able to go outside and enjoy what nature we have left in this world is great! Regardless of what you are doing.

Climbing, hiking, rope-descending and above all surviving...
