A Return to Nature--The Highlands, Scotland
Having spent the summer months surrounded by the mountains and now emerging myself in the urban scenery, a trek into the Scottish Highlands was a necessary indulgence. The Highlands are located in the middle portion of the country bound to the North by Inverness, the capital of the Highlands. The area is characterized by mountains, grassy planes, and a sparse population. The remoteness of my surroundings was apparent with only the sound of the rushing mountain streams, the sloshing of my feet on the soggy grass, and the howling winds.
