American Adventures Month ends today. I hope you had a great time in all of your adventures. I know I did. However, I wish I’d had more time over the summer to spend on more adventures. Work kept getting in the way, and it’s not like it was regular work either. The type of “work” that kept getting in the way was the extra stuff like urgent shifts covered due to the illnesses of others, extra work-flow taken on for a colleague with family troubles, etc. Bottom line is, I’m too nice. I helped others because I would want them to do the same for me. But it cost me my outdoor time, and I suffered for it.
Well, summer is still going on. In fact, Fall doesn’t start until September 23rd. And even if it was the “end” of summer, who cares? I am the type of person who will spend as much of my free time outside as I possibly can, and I hope you will too. So I’m not going to look at it as the end of American Adventures Month, but as the continuation of my year-round adventures. Each month will bring different ones to all of us. We just have to seek them out. As for me, I’m looking forward to the camping trip my daughter and I take every September. What are you looking forward to?
I put together a collection of beautiful outdoor adventure images and quotes. I hope they inspire you as they did me. Enjoy!
