Five quotes to get hiking kids thinking

“One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.”
One of the great advantages of being out on the trail with your children is the opportunity to bond with them – to jointly share the beauty of nature, to engage in meaningful conversation. The former will take care of itself, but the latter is up to you.

To that end, here are five great quotations about hiking that you might discuss with your children, especially if they are in upper elementary grades or teenagers:

“Trees give peace to the souls of men.” - Nora Waln

“Laws change; people die; the land remains.” - Abraham Lincoln

“One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.” - Shakespeare

“How glorious a greeting the sun gives the mountains.” - John Muir

“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” - Albert Einstein
