Song Lyrics That Make Perfect Hiking Captions

But I would walk five hundred miles. And I would walk five hundred more….-I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) by The Proclaimers

I had a dream so big and loud
I jumped so high I touched the clouds
Wo-o-o-o-o-oh, wo-o-o-o-o-oh
I stretched my hands out to the sky
We danced with monsters through the night
Wo-o-o-o-o-oh, wo-o-o-o-o-oh —Best Day of My Life by American Authors

At the end of a storm, There’s a golden sky –You’ll Never Walk Alone Gerry and the Pacemakers

Listen, baby, ain’t no mountain high, Ain’t no valley low, ain’t no river wide enough, baby –Ain’t No Mountain High Enough by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell

Like a true nature’s child
We were born
Born to be wild
We can climb so high
I never wanna die

Born to be wild- Born to Be Wild by Steppenwolf

Hiking Captions from Famous Quotes

“Between every two pines there is a doorway to a new world.” – John Muir

“It had nothing to do with gear or footwear or the backpacking fads or philosophies of any particular era or even with getting from point A to point B. It had to do with how it felt to be in the wild. With what it was like to walk for miles with no reason other than to witness the accumulation of trees and meadows, mountains and deserts, streams and rocks, rivers and grasses, sunrises, and sunsets.

The experience was powerful and fundamental. It seemed to me that it had always felt like this to be a human in the wild, and as long as the wild existed it would always feel this way.” – Cheryl Strayed: Wild
