Wilderness is:

To me wilderness is alot of stuff, before I came out to the wilderness I thought it was straight wild, still another world, everything left the same. But now when I came down here I can see that it's not. There's alot of damage that's been made by humans like paths, the cutting of trees.

Some parts (most of them) they are very beautiful. Then there are some parts that look sad. Alot of trees are on the ground, looks like they've been cut down. Most of them don't even look like they're old.
