What is wilderness to me?

Wilderness to me means the admiration of nature! To see, hear, feel, touch, even enjoy nature. There are many beautiful green trees, amazing animals in the wilderness, the beautiful rocks and mostly the beautiful waterfalls. The two things I enjoy most about the wilderness is the scenery from up high an dmostly of the stars late at night. The one thing or most important thing is to explore nature. Explore the differences between the city and nature. There are just so many beautifl things in the wilderness that you can enjoy and see. There is never a time where you can be bored or something that you seen that you didn't admire of like. Nature always has a remembrance!

Jenifer and Rosa's Leave No Trace skit

"When the morning freshness has been replaced by the muscle quivers under the strain, the climb seems endless, and suddenly nothing will go quite as you wish - it is then that you must not hesitate." - Iag Hammerskjold

I thought this quote was trying to say that whatever your mission or goals you want to accomplish, don't ever give up, no matter how long it takes, just accomplish it. If it seems that it is taking longer than you think just hang in there and finish it. I felt that I was accomplishing a goal myself. The hike took forever. I was tired, cold and lazy but I did it and made the hike. There was a time where I wanted to give up but what good is that for me and the others? So I just prayed and asked God to give us the strength to make it very safely and the power to hike back to Badger pass. This was a very great experience for me! All in all, I did have fun.
