Off all the roads you take in life…..

…..make sure a a few of them are dirt. John Muir

Watch the movie here 

A new year always brings with it contemplative thoughts about life and our future….taking a few more dirt roads seems like a very good use of my minutes, days, years ahead..even if it is simply walking down a local back road away form the hustle and bustle of daily life.

This video by John Muir Trust sums up my personal connection to Scotland and probably any persons connection to ‘their wilderness’. As a person stands in awe of any landscape it is difficult to clearly put into words that susinct feeling inside of ultimate connection. This video says it perfectly.

This short film by the John Muir Trust is based on the writings of naturalist, author and environmental philosopher John Muir. It is a an ode to wilderness, and was filmed in the Scottish Highlands
