What are your expectations for the wilderness?
My expectations from the wilderness are to know what it really is. I want to know if it's true that it is a place where no one harms it in any way. By learning more about it I think I will really get the real definition. And I also expect to have fun finding out what it is.
What was the reality of wilderness?
My experience out in the wilderness sucked. It was raining all day. If we would have had good weather I would have had a different experience. I guess this wasn't a good tome to experience the wilderness, because the wilderness is a beautiful place to be in. Oh well we are never going to stop Mother Nature about what she does. Today we actually got to get a better experience of a wilderness because the weather is beautiful. It's a nice quiet place where you can relax your mind. I think the value of the wilderness is that it is a place where you can relax, get out of the city, and have fun. Especially because there is no civilization around. Also you can learn about the different types of organisms in a wilderness that you won't see on a regular basis. Just by seeing the different types of plants makes a wilderness beautiful.
