Wilderness is... the best thing that the world has to offer. Wilderness to me is all of the plants, animals, streams, rivers, sound and smells of the outdoors. I can't imagine how horrible it would be if there was no Wilderness and just houses, buildings and cars. The best thing I like about the wilderness, is the peaceful feeling you get, where you know you don't have to worry about getting shot or hit by a car.

This was one of the funnest weeks of my life. I'm going to leave knowing way more that I did when this started. It was crazy because even though, we didn't hike as far as we wanted to, we still had the adventure of a lifetime. We got over a lot of problems, and we still were able to laugh, and have fun. One thing I'm going to miss about this whole adventure is the quiet days, and nights, and all the beautiful scenery. It's going to be hard to get used to my house again after this.
