Full Moon Freehike

“Full Moon. . . This is actually the best time of the month for a nightly naked hike . . . So I went yesterday to our nature reserve, stripped, took of everything . . . including watch, glasses, shoes, socks, the lot. . . and went off, for a two hours hike. . . there is no better way to experience complete freedom, to experience nature in all it glory, just you the way you are supposed to be, with God and his creation. You don’t see the animals, but the sounds of so many creatures is all around you. The rustling of the wind in the trees, a gently cool breeze stroking your skin. No artificial light but . . . moonlight which gives everything that special, spooky is the wrong word, appearance. I don’t know how to describe it, but it is fantastic. . . no worry about meeting any one, you can enjoy it completely relaxed. Dip in the river, lay down in bed of pine leaves. Sometimes you surprise an animal, an antelope or something, that sees, or smells or hears you before you do, and takes of into the bush. The hair in you neck stands up for a few seconds, but that is it.” - Habakukrsa
