Dear friends and family of Richard Iglehart,

First, I would like to thank you for this experience that I was able to have because of you. Through this experience I was able to have a better appreciation towards Wilderness. Now, I am able to define the word Wilderness and what it means to me. To me wilderness is the untouched beauty that has been placed here millions of years ago. Wilderness is the natural habitat of the tress, plants, animals and rivers that have not been harmed by people. Through this experience I was also able to meet others that I might not have gotten to know otherwise. Thanks again for this awesome opportunity I was able to have. Through this experience I was able to find the things about me that I didn't know about me. It also helped my physical and spiritual sides in me. Thank you again for this opportunity that you have provided for me.

5 Senses Poem

As I sit and listen I hear the song of the river the song that the breeze makes passing through the grass

As I sit and listen I am at peace and feel whole

As I sit and listen I realize the beauty that is here

As the sun pierces through the night sky the beauty of the night and the brightness of the moon has disappeared

As the sun begins to rise it signifies the beauty that is to come it awakens the flowers from their deep sleep so all can see

The sun also brings new beginnings
