There is no doubt that Mother Nature is in the healing process this Earth Day. Everyone is asking if the COVID-19 pandemic is Mother Nature’s response to human transgression. The tipping point is near and this is definitely warning. We saw warnings before as snow on top of mountains began to melt away and forest fires raged. We also need to make sure that our National Parks are protected for future generations. The Earth should be all of our legacies.

We also want to return to nature, and there is no doubt that being in lockdown has us counting the days. Be responsible and leave no trace. Camping in the most luxurious experience you will ever have. All the long haul flights and fancy resorts are just distractions to what has been around us all along.

It doesn’t take much to get out of the city, except maybe a backpack and some equipment. I’m convinced that the more of us who tries to return to the great outdoors will be more inclined to protect it. And camping is the ultimate in social distancing. Don’t forget your three R’s when camping: reduce, reuse, and recycle.

Along with bringing your own reusable water bottle and packing recyclable materials to reduce the use of single-use plastic, here is our Editor’s Pick to get prepared once we are given the full okay to get back out there!
