As much as I claim that my weekly photo hikes are a much-needed, much-anticipated break that allow me to get away from my daily routine, I don’t actually, completely… disconnect.
I take photos with my smartphone, posting them to Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. I check emails, I Google places to go. When I have the chance to simply bask in the glory of being outdoors, rain or shine, I can’t seem to cut that electronic umbilical cord.
This weekend will be different. My phone will only be used for providing background music and GPS tracking, maybe a compass.
