Ah, the great outdoors. A place for life, death, and seemingly infinite inspiration. Today's Word of Mouth is all about the outdoors: capturing its beauty through photography, creating its beauty through manipulation, and rediscovering its beauty in the most unlikely places. Join us for a walk through the wild then share your thoughts on our Facebook and Twitter.
