Majestic Malaysia | By Cindy Rosene Hardin, Director of Outdoor Education

I am a huge fan of California and its natural beauty, particularly that of the Southern Region. I consider myself very fortunate to live in this part of the world. However, like most people, I sometimes get swept up with workaday duties, and find that my focus narrows to the immediate, rather than the bigger picture. While this facilitates accomplishing many tasks, it can inhibit creativity and awareness that there is life beyond my tiny little corner!
