Why do we love camping quotes? You haven’t really tasted the outside world if you haven’t tried camping.
Camping is going outside from the comfort of your home; the fluffy bed, the clean bathroom, unlimited electricity, and water, or your coffee machine. To the wilderness; the grass or the soil as a bed under the sparkling stars.
For people who love the luxuries of life, camping is an eye-opener. It opens our eyes to the beauty of nature and the serenity it offers. It helps us be better persons as we build our own fires and entertain ourselves away from our kitchen appliances and television sets or the internet. If we are with friends or family, it will strengthen our bonds through conversations, singing together or sharing stories around the campfire. If we are alone it will help us reflect and gives us peace.
I really like camping, it not only makes me healthy by hiking on trails but it also makes me appreciate God’s creation. It may be hard if the trail is long or filled with obstacles, but it is always worth it. From a picturesque view of a lake to a vast field between mountains, or to a scenic sunrise from a cliff the morning after; it makes the adventure worthwhile.
Here are some camping quotes that might inspire you to camp or make you remember your camping days:
1.

Rice, The Unpeopled Season: Journal from a North Country Wilderness
2. I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery. Air, mountains, tree, people. I thought: this is what it is to be happy. – Sylvia Plath
3.
