Dear friends and family of Richard Iglehart,

Thank you for this wonderful experience you have given us. This expedition has been sort of hard but tremendously rewarding and beautiful. The beautiful sights make up for the hard work and you feel great once you've reached your destination. This has made me feel in a way I have never felt before. I have learned so much about the Wilderness and also maps and trails and how to be oriented. All of this knowledge might really be useful some day and I'm glad I've gained some of this knowledge. Being here has given me a sense of peace and calmness that I hadn't experienced before. Not only have I learned to appreciate nature more, but I have also had the opportunity to meet new people who have been pretty nice to me. The Wilderness truly is special. It is not only a bunch of trees and flowers, and beautiful creeks and waterfalls; but it is a place that makes you feel at home. It has been my home for a couple of days and it has truly been a unique and wonderful experience. Once again thank you for this great expedition.
