Dear Friends and Family of Richard Iglehart,
Thank you for letting me have a wonderful experience in Wilderness. To me Wilderness is something very important for me to learn more about living nature. I have a really great time in the backcountry and with all the hiking and the group sticking together and looking out for each other. It is a very great idea to have a Wilderness for students to learn about living nature and why there are living creatures in the Wilderness. Staying around observing, I hear birds chirping, airplanes' noise, and the cold winds coming though me. I have never done all these things in Yosemite before because this is the first time that I have ever been to the top of a mountain and camping, and the first time seeing snow, and hiking for the longest time (five house or four). Well, thanks for the Wilderness and Yosemite; I really did a lot of things and learned a lot of things here.
