“Hug a Tree!”

After the jeep ride up the mountain (yesterday’s post) going past the mirador (Spanish for a vista overlook platform), we stopped at the trailhead for multiple trails. Me and the 3-generation Tico family chose the shorter trail through the forest down to the Savegre Mirador. Just one experience here, so be sure to see the others in the Hiking the Pioneers Trail Photo GALLERY.

And for more pix on the trails at Savegre, click the linked blog post below titled “Trails and Trees” where Marino Chacón (a different son of the founder than this year) took me on a longer trails hike for the early morning bird hike back in January 2021, just the 2 of us.

¡Pura Vida!

  1. Charlie,
    Hugging trees is a way of expressing appreciation and kindness to nature. Trees provide much to mankind. I sometimes ponder on this verse of Scripture (Psalm 96: 12): “Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it. Then all the trees of the woods will rejoice before the LORD.” The thought of “joyful trees” are probably trees that someone has hugged.

    1. Thanks Larry! That is so true and the emotional benefits for the one who hugs a tree is also not measurable, But both people and forests benefit when we love nature and protect it!

      “Then all the trees of the woods will rejoice before the LORD.” Thanks again Larry! 🙂
