What is the best way to enjoy the natural beauty in local area?
Get a new camera. Join a local Explorers group or Boy Scouts (adults can participate as advisors of both) Bird watchers and Bee counters http://www.greatsunflower.org/ Get into a local gardener's group. Get a Traveler's Guide at a motel. Hang Glide!!
i like to be around rivers. maybe go on google maps and look for green areas and then go there. really what i do is just walk around and hang out where i like.
Run around Nakey!
go for walks
Sit and soak it all in and open up your mind to enjoy it...take pictures to look at it later, then go back and look at what you missed, if its a waterfalls, listen to other sounds of it that you have to find by focusing, I didn't recognize it until someone told me to listen deeper...and wow, there were other sounds out of the waterfalls,
Offer them money
