I think that in the wilderness it is like the forest that has a lot of giant trees and all kinds of animals. The challenge of it is we will learn how to survive in the mountains and compare the wilderness to our cities at home. I think that wilderness is like a place where there are wild animals and wild plants. Wilderness might be a place where it's quiet and we don't have anyone to tell us what to do. We can rest our mind and listen other animals and wind blow.

If I'm home right now at this time I think I'm be kicking with my homeboys or doing my homework. In Yosemite I only see snow and tress. I hear snows falling down the trees. I feel like a loner when everyone was quiet and listening to the sound. I don't usually see things in the dark because we don't get used to it. I'm fine in a place where there are too much light se we don't get use to see in the dark. At home I don't feel lonely because there are lots of sounds and in Yosemite I feel lonely because we have to listen very well to hear noise. I also feel like I'm small because there is mountain and trees blocking everything from my view. I listen to music when doing my homework.
