Wild sauntering is a way of being that allows my senses to wander more than my feet. Though I may have destination and plan, I give my attention to beauty rather than to pace and clock. Regardless of miles or speed, my most successful hikes include long moments lost in wonder. I measure journeys in moments, not miles.
Beauty is everywhere about us, and doesn't have to be spectacular to capture. For me, the subtle beauty of light and shadow in a common forest can be as wonderful as any grand and majestic vista. When I am really sauntering, true beauty is found in common places. Indeed, beauty is everywhere wild nature lives, and having the time to saunter converts holidays into holy days.
