To me, simple truths in simple language, yet so important.
S. O'connell
Although she shares wonderful details and photos about specific hikes along Colorado's Front Range, the exercises and insights could apply anywhere.
Gail D. Storey
It has so many great ideas for how to connect, deeply, with the natural environment.
Matthew A. Mckean

The stimulating activites suggested by Emerson have added an exciting element to my morning jog. Although the trails in the suburbs of southeast San Diego are lushly landscaped and pretty to look at, it takes some effort to appreciate natural beauty in this heavily constructed part of town. Spending time outdoors can be therapeutic, especially when guided by Emerson's simple, yet meaningful thought-exercises. Sharing this book with friends and neighbors is a great way to start important discussions about the living world in your local community.

Instead of rush uphill & down for aerobic exercise, these hikes for different seasons let one stop and enjoy the nature. The magic in the ever-changing and motion in the natural world. The peace when you reach the higher places.

I really appreciate this book! Contemplative Hiking is informative, makes me laugh, and easily invites us to explore the world of Colorado hiking and ourselves. It makes the process of learning more about our spirit accessible and less mysterious. I also appreciate how easily Margaret explains our human connectedness to the world around us: we are nature too. To me, simple truths in simple language, yet so important. And a great gift for friends and family!
