“I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, ‘This is what it is to be happy.’”
― Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
Who says you need a significant other on Valentines Day to be happy? Sylvia Plath so beautifully expressed how all we need to do is look to the outside world to fill our hearts with happiness! That’s right. Try doing what she did: go outside, fill your lungs with fresh air, revel at the beauty and mere existence of trees, mountains (if you can see any!), air and people. Love is everywhere! Need further proof that nature loves you? Take a look at these ten gorgeous photos of hearts appearing in nature, communicating with us all that love is all around you–you just have to look for it! Hearts in nature is the Earth’s gift to you this February 14th!

Over two decades ago when Donna and Jim Stein started The Road Less Traveled they were new parents and pioneers of an adventure travel program. They wanted to create a one-of-a-kind life changing experience for youth that would transform people 's lives around the world. Donna’s love of the outdoors began while growing up in Detroit, Michigan. At an early age, during the turbulent ‘60’s, Donna escaped the hot summers of the city and found respite in the north woods of Michigan, where she discovered independence and solace in the outdoors. Donna gained extensive business experience in corporations and non-profit organizations. She manages all development, operations, marketing, and upholds the rigorous standards that support the mission, training, and policies of RLT.View all posts by this author
