Happy Earth Day April 22nd

Earth day started in 1970...
It was started by Gaylord Nelson....
 then a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin...
 


I remember when it started...
I was 8 years old....
it has become much bigger over the years...
 

with all that is going on the world...
I think it is nice to stop...
take a moment to appreciate the place where we live...
Earth...
when live stresses me out...
nature is my cure...
the great out doors...
plants...animals....the call of the wild...
something about being out on the lake...river...
a field...my yard...just brings me peace...
gives me a new outlook on life....
while on our weekend away...
I saw lots of families...
enjoying the outdoors...
I think that is one of the greatest gifts you can give a child...
The love of the earth....the great outdoors...animals....

I love that first image, so peaceful with the mist rising from the water!!!
And the nest of little birds - they will be gone soon...

I was 19 at the time! Nature is a wonderful cure for stress. After going to Mammoth Lakes for some 20 years now my husband wants to stop and do something else. I say no each time....I love my week with nature!
Great pictures Deb.
