I know it’s going to sound odd, but one of my favorite sounds is gravel under a tire. But I know exactly why it’s one of my favorite sounds. I have a lot of happy, positive memories associated with the crunching of gravel under a car tire. Growing up, my family did a lot of hiking and backpacking. It was something that I really enjoyed and still do to this day. So every time I hear a car on gravel I just get flooded with happy memories, and it makes me want to go hiking.
How about you, readers? What are some of your favorite sounds?
