โ€œGetting lost was not a matter of geography so much as identity, a passionate desire, even an urgent need, to become no one and anyone, to shake off the shackles that remind you who you are, who others think you are.โ€ ~ Rebecca Solnit ๐Ÿ‘ฃ

Throwback to exploring Alum Creek last fall since there are still so many Ohio State Parks I want to visit. Whatโ€™s one of your favorite state parks?

Some fun facts from Waco Mammoth National Monument:
1) The mammoth fossils at the monument come from Columbian mammoths, a southern dwelling relative to woolly mammoths.
2) Fully grown Columbian mammoths could weigh up to ten tons and stood two to four feet taller than woolly mammoths. 
3) Columbian mammoths went through up to six sets of teeth during their lifetime. 
4) Columbian mammoths spent up to 20 hours a day eating, resulting in a whole lot of mammoth dung.
5) Columbian mammoths are cool (thatโ€™s not actually a fact but I think it should be ๐Ÿ˜).

Lessons from two weeks ago: You donโ€™t have to backpack the longest trail or climb the tallest peak. You can wind your way down a forest path, wander along a creek, or walk through a meadow bursting with wildflowers. Whatever path it is that brings you joy in nature, it is a valid and beautiful one.๐Ÿ‘ฃ
