The Lesson of the Forest

Like the forest, I will live and let live,
I will find my path, my purpose,
Take what I need, everything else I will give,
To all others, this ask I propose, in close; in prose.

Kolkata – a city trying to break out of its past

Kolkata has always been a city with dual identities; a dirty city that isn’t worth visiting, a city trapped in dirt and a bygone era; or a regal city, a shining star that weaves the Indian cultural capital, a City of Joy with the British Raj thread. After two days in the city, my first visit, I am definitely leaning towards the latter definition but only by consciously overlooking the former. It is definitely a city that everyone should visit.

Shenandoah – nature’s skyline and Luray – nature’s underground

U.S. National Parks are a gift to the people. From the bacteria that color the geysers in Yellowstone, to the alien-like trees that dot the landscape at Joshua Tree to the 14000 feet Rocky Mountains that soar over Denver to the 105 mile Skyline Drive that follows the crest of the Blue Ridge in Shenandoah, the national parks offer some of the most diverse landscapes in the world. 

Pikes Peak Region and the Garden of the Gods. A must do day trip from Denver.

14,115 feet is the highest I’ve been in my life. Pikes Peak will be the highest I’ve been on Planet Earth and that is special. Our second stop for the day was The Garden of the Gods, a national natural landmark. Dinosaurs used to roam freely among the pillars of rock. Read all about it…

Three days in the Rocky Mountain National Park. Getting high with nature.

In 1915, the Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) was established. The park encompasses tens of mountains over 12000 ft, is home to hundreds of bird species and over 50 animals. There are three ecosystems within the park, and plant life thrives in all of them. The park is now one of the Top 5 most visited national parks in the US and is fun to through the year for different activities. There are plenty of benches to sit, reflect, and take your own personal oath to explore, learn and protect nature and everything that is around us. Getting high up in the Rocky Mountains is the most natural way to let go of all your worries, and see the earth for what it is. Beautiful.
