Apparently when summiting Baldy last weekend, I was too actively participating in nature and not following the latest health trend of ... well anyway.  q27

Sounds like an activity for pretentious workaholics with stress problems. They pretend to immerse themselves in nature during short walks in man-made urban parks, when really they hope to extract health benefits from smelling cedars. I guess they don't have a lumber store nearby. Or, they're too lazy to order some cedarwood oil from Amazon.

Could watch NatGeo in slow-mo too....it'll have the same lasting power as this sales  push by the outdoors media lackeys.

What is the difference between hiking, meandering and going for a walk? Interesting that when I just looked at the video, one of the advertisements below was for something called Scamalot.

Adventurers hike. Non-adventurers walk. And zombies meander.

Whew, thanks for that. I've always considered myself a hiker, although when I tell people that the most common belief seems to be that I'm out there with a rope, crampons, ice walls etc. At that point I tell them I just walk. Long distances. And carry all my stuff on my back.
