May 25, 2011 - PRLog -- Nature’s ability to improve the health of a person through simple observation has been well documented. According to “A considerable body of research shows that viewing natural scenes has a positive health impact.” The outdoors is a great healer and The State of Vermont provides endless beauty to be observed. Vermont Waterfalls Tour LLC has put together a 180 scenic mile stress relieving tour stopping at 7 exquisite waterfalls in one day available June to October 2011.

Established by Lillian C Hughes (A Vermont resident for  more than 30 years), the tour is a full 8 hours of observing and exploring the green mountains majestic waterfalls and forests without having to look at a map. “Environmental psychologists have demonstrated that contact with nature restores attention and mental focus while also helping the mind to recover from mental fatigue (Kaplan & Kaplan, 1989).” “Other studies also establish a direct connection with nature and the ability to recover from psychological stress (Hartig 2005).” Vermont Waterfalls Tour was designed to be a stress free and relaxing way to gain the rewards of contact with nature without the stress of trying to find places or taking too much time away from work.

With all the stressors in our busy lives it can be challenging to feed our need for contact with nature. “Humans have a deep-seated need for contact with nature, which researchers theorize provides relaxing down time for a brain that is otherwise overtaxed by modern pressures.” according to Finding the time to get away from those modern pressures can be difficult. Vermont Waterfalls Tour makes it easy. The guided tour is a one day vacation visiting 7 Vermont waterfalls that will clear the mind and feed the need for contact with nature without taking too much time away from busy lifestyles allowing work to pile up and stress levels to increase.  

The adult only tour runs 9am to 5:30pm Wednesday through Saturday from June 8th to October 29th for the 2011 season and includes lunch. Book online website: Pick up is at the Richmond Park & Ride or anywhere in Chittenden County for groups of 5-9 and private tours.

Lillian C Hughes is a graduate of the University of Vermont. Since receiving her BA in psychology she has continued study in herbal medicine, nutritional and natural healing, traditional cooking, self diagnosis and self healing.

About Vermont Waterfalls Tour LLC

Lillian C Hughes started Vermont Waterfalls Tour LLC this spring in hopes of helping people get in touch with nature without the stress of finding places. She is both a naturalist and food traditionalist who believes that nature is the path to healing.

Establishing Vermont Waterfalls Tour LLC has been a dream of Ms. Hughes for many years although the concept is but a year old, her dream of starting her own business is much older. In the mid 1990's she participated in the Women's Small Business program in hopes of starting her own business. It wasn't until last year on a trip to Moss Glen Falls-Stowe with her family that the business concept was formed.

The tour is 180 scenic Vermont miles riding in a Ford E350 12 passenger van. 7 waterfalls, a stop for lunch in Hancock along the way, and a ride through Smugglers Notch to cap off the day. Let the healing begin.
