And other times, I prefer to wander…
With a pack of supplies on my back and a trusted walking stick in my hand, I saunter, I listen, and I explore. And the world becomes my playground. As the landscape changes, I change. As I escape the modern dystopia, I am reborn.
If you’ve never experienced this connection, I suggest you give it a try. Surround yourself in the natural world, and it will reveal what may have never had, or known existed.
I perched myself on a rock and watched the world awaken. The birds began chirping as the sun peeked like a sliver of light over the treetops, and with it came the most profound feeling of belonging and peace, and I knew that this area of woods received few human visitors, and perhaps that is the very reason it held such meaning and emotion for me. What I am sure of is that I’ve found my place of peace, and I will visit at times of tribulation and confusion, and when I’m in need of respite.
After awhile, I stood and turned back, vowing to return another day.

Crafted from beautiful and durable materials, a wooden walking stick, walking cane, or hiking staff from Brazos will last you for many years to come.
What I thought about Brazos walking sticks:
I recently teamed up with the fine folks over at Brazos Walking Sticks in Waco, Texas. They provided me with the chance to try their oak and hickory walking sticks. A good stick can make all the difference on long hikes and difficult terrain. You may be thinking what’s so special about a walking stick… But their product is so much more than a branch cut to the right height. Their sticks are finely carved and finished like a piece of art. I found their products to be priced fairly, and the quality to far exceed my expectations. The quality of the workmanship, the carving, and the finishing were fantastic with both the Oak and the Hickory sticks, and I know they are treated to last. I’m happy with my experience, with the opportunity to move away from metal trekking poles to stay with the natural approach, as I do with my hikes.
