Monkey Business – Nature Chills Challenge #3

Hahaha… these fellows really chill in nature! Thank you so much for this great post!


One of my favourite places to visit in Japan. The snow monkeys in Jigokudani, Nagano, Japan. Jigokudani means “Hell Valley” It is a snowy chilly little place with thermal activity resulting in some natural hot springs along side a swift running river. It is also the habitat for some Japanese Macaque monkeys who love to come down and bath in the pools.

These wee fellows just chill out, groom each other and soak away the stresses of monkey life in the pools, seemingly oblivious to the snappy happy tourists who come to see them. They may even be wondering why we are so shy and don’t get our kit off and get in for a soak with them. This area is for the monkeys only but they have been known to wander over to nearby hot spring lodges and use the guest pools.

I love visiting and just spending sometime chilling out…

Challenges to Getting Outdoors Daily – Nature Chills Challenge #3

What a great challenge! How about taking it? And yes, how about telling about your adventures in a post, tagging it with ‘Nature Chills Challenge3’ and linking it to my blog?

Is getting out into nature daily a challenge?

Or do you need a challenge to get out daily into nature?

Getting out into Nature a challenge? {}Tomorrow is May 1.  Nothing like a new month to take on a new challenge.  And MAYbe this is your month.  May is spring in the northern hemisphere and autumn in the southern hemisphere — not too hot, not too cold, just right for getting outside and getting a daily dose of nature time!

But…maybe you’re feeling too busy.  Or maybe you’ve had a nature walk go wrong.  Or maybe you can’t seem to remember a single benefit to time outdoors when the kids beg for just 30 more minutes in Minecraft. Or is that only at my house?

Getting outside, every day, can be a challenge — so here are 3 challenges to get you there:

1. Starting May 1, the David Suzuki Foundation has a 30×30 challenge

Water Course – Nature Chills Challenge #3

Great post for the Nature Chills Challenge! Thank you so much for your participation!!!


Out on the river,  no-one else around
Enjoying the peace of Nature’s sound
Puttering gently, not making waves,
It’s a different world.
Banks of birds, overlapping trees,
The soft caress of a summer breeze
Ruffles my hair, kisses my skin,
Worth more than the brightest gold.
Cloudless skies on a sunny day
No anger or worries to get in our way
All is calm, still and quiet,
Life’s perfection to behold.

Nature Chills Challenge #3 – Half Time 

We are now more or less in the middle of the Nature Chills Challenge #3 and I thought it’s time to list the posts that have been entered so far.

So don’t feel shy! It’s the time of the year where nature everywhere changes the most. Be it spring in the northern hemisphere or fall down south. Tell me what makes you chill in nature, makes you happy, relax, feel good… and share it in a post in the Nature Chills Challenge. You can find all the details here.

Be Still – Nature Chills Challenge #3

What a wonderful post about the beauty of nature…

the beespeak

Be Still Be Still

Rest beneath the branches
of the weeping willow
and settle into nature

Let stress float away
like ripples in the water
or a cloud in the sky

Be still
and find comfort
in the certainty of God

(Posted as entry to A Momma’s View Nature Chills Challenge 3. I look forward to viewing all the other posts!)
