What is Wilderness to you? Is it important? How does it make you feel?

Wilderness for me is a place to relax to and to have an adventure; that is Wilderness to me.

The Wilderness is important to me because if there was no Wilderness there wouldn't be any of the animals that there is in the Wilderness. I feel really tired but it was worth it to be here. I never climbed a rock in my life so I am really excited to be on top of North dome and see the view the North Dome has. It is cold up here. And my back hurts. For the way back I don't want to think about it. It is going to be hard but I can do it. It was Joey's birthday and we celebrated on North Dome—how lucky.
