Nature is not always safe. Mountains in particular can be dangerous. This is one reason why I enjoy walking in tame places such as Chorlton Meadows. There are designated walking routes around the Mersey Valley where, also in the Lake District, I enjoy the descriptions. Walking, they say, fills you with energy and confidence. I think it does. There’s a great deal to its psychology but one aspect of this is how it affirms you.
