The Park

“Wilderness to the people of America is a spiritual necessity, an antidote to the high pressure of modern life, a means of regaining serenity and equilibrium.”

~ Sigurd F. Olson, (1899-1982) American author and environmentalist

When I am overwhelmed, irritated, or simply bored with the demands of daily routine I love to escape to a “park.”  Whether that park is national, state, or local; it is the sound of birds, the fresh air, and the enormity of the great outdoors that often puts my own concerns into perspective.  This shot was taken on a recent visit to Banning State Park in Minnesota.

My name is Mara. I am Minnesota born and raised. Four seasons, forests, farms, and 10,000 lakes have given me a deep appreciation for nature. Photography helps me to share this love with others. And, once in awhile, I find myself interested in sociology. Go figure.
