Solitude (n.) - a lonely or uninhabited place.
one of my favorite things about nature is getting away from crowds. if you’re like me, sometimes even national parks don’t seem to be an authentic experience of the outdoors, simply because there are so many other people. having to wait at an entrance gate for 30 minutes before even getting the car in is a bad sign for me. that’s why i’ve tried to expand my horizons over the past year, and i would encourage you to as well! if you’re tired of crowds getting in the way of nature, try visiting a usfs national forest. there aren’t nearly as many amenities as in a national or state park, but to me that’s a beautiful thing. also, you can usually camp for free along forest service roads. get out there and explore!
