Research has shown that getting out in nature helps anxiety and depression. You get to challenge yourself, hang out with a friend maybe, and see the beauty of Maine and New Hampshire. And, you can do this simple act all year long! I think it's safe to say that Mount Washington is a favorite to explorers. It's a must do for some, whether you hike it, or drive up it. And, it's the perfect spot for epic selfies, or photos of you and your accomplishment. I know for sure, that it is so much harder to leave your warm and cozy home in the winter. The hardest part is conceiving yourself to do it. But I am telling you, once you bundle up, and hit the trail; you will love it. I do hope that these Instagram photos will inspire you to get out and explore our gorgeous states this winter. Just look at the smiles on their faces!
