A few moments of reflection during these stressful times with the help of meditative sounds from nature.

We take a little audio vacation, close our eyes and really listen to the natural world. We begin our journey in the Olympic Peninsula to hear Pacific chorus frogs and bugling elk. Then we travel into the mountains of Washington state to listen to the sounds of melting snow.

These sounds were recorded by Gordon Hempton the Sound Tracker and co-founder of Quiet Parks International.

THE WILD is a production of KUOW in Seattle in partnership with Chris Morgan and Wildlife Media. This special edition was produced by Jim Gates and Brendan Sweeney with help from Matt Martin and David Brown.
