Wilderness [is] undiscovered beauty waiting to be found. Freedom. My own amazing escape. My home away from all the cars, buildings, and refineries. My release, my freedom. I feel like my problems, my sorrows have disappeared. It's amazing, the intensity and the beauty overwhelms me. The soft breeze, the roaring of the waterfall, the chirping of birds-its all like magic. Seeing all the waterfalls, the snow, and the water, makes me feel so connected to everything, like everyone here is my family and this is our home. I feel cleansed and awakened.
