Wilderness is:

Wilderness for me is where I can sit without disturbing, watching trees everywhere, breathing clean air without the smell of the cigarette, looking at all the different animals, hearing the sound of the water, looking up to the sky and looking at all of the bright, shiny stars. For me being here is a great experience because I never had an opportunity to go hiking or even camping. It's a different, totally different thing from being down there in the cities. Looking for a place to camp, place for the tent, sleeping in the floor without your bed with a lot of clothes, sleeping on a sleeping bag, waking up with the noises of the birds, cooking without a stove, looking for a safe place to go p., looking at all different kinds of plants, learning about them, knowing different people, anyways is a great experience for me but I think it would be better if my family were here.
