I don’t know about you but there’s something about wildlife that just thrills me. It’s one of the things I love most about ATVing. Coming up on a massive wild moose enjoying a drink by a stream or seeing a mama black bear and her cubs meandering across the road. It’s thrilling and awe inspiring. Being so close to nature like that takes my breath away by the beauty and power of it.
When we traveled to the Dominican Republic for our wedding, we went swimming with the dolphins, a wow-factor adventure. I was terrified as we walked into their pen and I wasn’t sure if I could do it. But soaring across the ocean on the nose of two dolphins was one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life!
When I saw this video about an amazing chance encounter with a troop of wild mountain gorillas near Bwindi National Park, Uganda, my jaw dropped. I can only imagine how intense the experience must have been. Takes my dolphin experience to a whole new level. I am not sure I could have sat as still as the man in the video did?!?!?!
What about you, what are some of your favorite experiences with mother nature? Or up and close adventures with wildlife? Do you think you could have sat still with a silverback gorilla not 2 or 3 feet from you?
