Wilderness is:

Wilderness is the most beautiful thing you could have the honor of being able to see. It's a place where you can relax, be yourself, and reevaluate everything. It's quiet, it's peace of mind and comfort into one. It's getting away from it all. Being able to see what's so far away. Having the ability to know that you can be without electronics, and you can just lay and look at the clouds, or see all the stars. Wilderness brings a little something to everyone. Whether comfort, relief, or the ability to sleep better at night. It is the joy in the world, the peace. Even with everything that's going on, because 4witht he waterfalls, it washes away worries. And with the rivers, flows through peoples' hearts. And mountains show you there is no limit. It is the right which has no wrong. Wilderness has always been. It's not cars, phones, buildings, or restaurants, but only just a few trees, animals, insects, clouds, stars, rivers, lakes and waterfalls. That's wilderness. Because even though there aren't any humans or other things that doesn't mean things aren't there. Wilderness is what we hiked six hours to get to and it was all worth it.
