Monday — never an easy time for the outdoors enthusiast. After a weekend of adventure, returning to the humdrum work-a-day world can make one melancholy. To help ease the transition, every Monday we feature a 90 Second Escape — essentially, a 90-second video or slide show of a place you’d probably rather be: a trail, a park, a greenway, a lake … anywhere as long as it’s not under a fluorescent bulb.
Today’s 90-Second Escape: Getting There
OK, this is a little cheesy, a little last-minute, a bit OMG-I-Need-90-Seconds-of-…-Something. I could call it edgy cinema with the hand-held, cinema verite feel, but really it’s just dicey craftsmanship. And I could go on about the existential nature of getting there vs. being there, about how it’s as much about the journey as the destination, blah blah blah, but really, it’s just about hopping in the car to get to where we need to be. But mostly, it’s about the 90-Second/OMG thing. Anyway, here’s 90 seconds of the 10-minute ride I take to get to where I play the most, Umstead State Park in the heart of the Triangle.
For something that is a little more profound, though, come back after noon today and we’ll clue you in to a new project we’re launching. If you’re looking forward to the fall as much as we are, you’ll want to check it out.
