People come to know about the world in new, more complex ways [Crouch, 2000] during their experience of recreational visiting. However, capturing experience data that is grounded in the frames of reference salient to individual visitors is challenging. A method that uses egocentric point of view (egoPOV) video to record situated, bodily experiences of visits to natural places during the moment of the visit is described. Examples of themes emerging from this egoPOV data are discussed.
