We've the opposite down here in San Diego, with winged critters
of all types (except for mosquitoes) buzzing around day hikers
excursioning in the Cuyamacas and Cleveland Forest - they're
both within 45min of our sprawl. Wildflowers are rampant as
well, with one entry in a summit box journal listing over
thirty-five species in bloom last Sunday on the 3mi trailline
to the peak. In places, other trails pass through strongholds
of one species or another, with the aromatic symphony quieting
there, as first-class first chair solos waft across aural and
visual and spiritual landscapes absent in suburban banality.
Lasting maybe fifty paces, such singular passages offer manageable
degrees of complexity in nurturing doses. Walking in the
backcountry has no other option than to be sensual. Leave work
early - before rush hour... Stay out into dusk... Spy on the
world we are part of. Swim in its currents. Smile at how beautiful
it all is.
