Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Sharing is caring!

The day after Earth Day

Every day should be Earth Day. For those who really enjoy a certain day each year whether it is Christmas, New Year’s Eve, or your birthday always feel a let down the day after knowing they have to wait 364 more days for the event to come around again. To make matters worse, this year is Leap Year.

Mother Earth is sure to be bummed out this morning knowing it has to wait another year for its day. Don’t fret Earth, it is always Earth Day in my book. Here is a collage of photos I have taken in the last few years featuring you in order for you to turn that frown upside down.
