The difference wilderness makes in me:

The difference in here and back in my house is a lot different compared to there. What I think back in my house I think that I don't learn much about wildness, in my hometown I never go take a walk like 4 or 3 hours, and in my house I learn nothing about nature. But the difference here in wilderness, I like what I did know I learn about nature just one day, and I never knew that nature could be so beautiful. Nature is something that has a lot to learn about, but if you just open your heart and eyes you will see a lot of different things. And I'm so happy to be here.

Wilderness is:

Wilderness to me is like another world to me. It's such peace and a wonderful place. Wilderness is something that makes you feel who you are, this is a place that you can rest peacefully. You could really learn from wilderness, if you open your eye, your heart, and your ears. For me wilderness is a place where I relax, without anything interfering, and it is a place that I could stay without nothing to worry about. Wilderness is a beautiful place where animals and humans live together. Wilderness is a place that all kinds of wild animals and trees live, really wilderness does not belong to us. It belongs to nature and animals. So we should treat wilderness like our home, just the same as the animals do.
