I love the wilderness. It is very pretty. The only thing I don't like is the fact of bugs; they bit you so much. As I sit here next to the river it is so peaceful and quiet. All you hear is birds and see bugs crawling over everything. Trees laying down on top of the other. Throughout my life it has been just like the mountains I walked up and down on, because my life has been through the good and the bad. By me being out here it helped me understand life a little bit more. Don't get me wrong while I was out here I had some ruff times. Walking up the hills was really hard. And I would just like to say as I write this on top of a mountain 8000 feet in the air, I think of how I am so lucky. The top of the world looks so beautiful and amazing. There's snow, rocks. And in the distance you see waterfalls as if you were watching tv. I never thought I would be where I am today.

I have pushed myself so much through walking with almost 45 pounds on my back for miles just to get to camp. It was so amazing. I don't have the words to express how happy I am while I sit on top of the world. I got mad a couple of times but who don't on their first time. When I climbed to the top and saw the view, it was like I could touch god.
