Go take an Obsessive Compulsive Hike!

My mind was completely blown away when I first saw Simon Beck's "drawings" on snow. To make his patterns, Simon walks on snowshoes for up to 9 hours a day, sometimes to find the morning after that his progress has been erased by overnight weather. 
The OCD part of my can totally understand this! It has to be hypnotic to walk on and on for hours, paying close attention to the pattern your footsteps make on the soft snow.

Doesn't this remind you of labyrinths and meditation mazes?

  1. Wow!!! That is so cool. I wish I'd thought of that.

    1. I bet you could still try this in Anchorage, Amy!


I love hearing from you. Please share your thoughts.
