Every once in a while when I’m in nature, I come across something incredible. Sometimes it’s a rare glimpse of amazing animal behavior, sometimes a closeup look at a bizarre species. Whenever I have these experiences, my first reaction is to want to share them with other people. Why?
Because it’s too easy to under-appreciate nature, even for us outdoor enthusiasts. How often on hikes do people stop and sit for twenty minutes, noticing the endlessly amazing insects around them? But if people don’t realize what extraordinary things are out there, they’re less likely to look closely for them.
The purpose of this blog is to share my favorite natural experiences with other people in the hopes of inspiring them to appreciate that natural world and explore it slowly and carefully themselves. Currently, this blog focuses on nature in and around Fort Collins, Colorado.
