Wilderness [is] a place were one can step away from everyday life and struggle, a place where no matter where you look, you see nature in its true form. [This experience] makes me feel a lot more in tune with nature and life. I now understand why people care so much and do so much to protect what little bits of true nature we still have. I think I could raise awareness of everything we are losing to pollution. I could try and save every last part of my community that has its natural beauty.
