Wilderness is my place of peace. It is my joy and happiness.
Wilderness gives me time to think, to reflect and truly appreciate.
Wilderness is the most awesome place anyone could ever be.
Wilderness does have value to me. It's like an unknown place that everyone deeply desires, but is hard for them to find or appreciate because they're stuck thinking about all this other kind of stuff.
What this experience means to me is EVERYTHING! It was way better than I imagined it, it was the best thing that EVER happened to me. It was an eye opener, an inspiration, a life changing experience and I REALLY enjoyed EVERY second of it. This trip cleansed me and made me HOLD ON and NOT give up. It made me appreciate the WILD LIFE MORE. It made me appreciate people. It was just AWESOME.
I have learned many things on this trip, and I will take everything I've learned to improve myself and others as well. I will go after my dreams and not allow anyone, any obstacle, anything get in my way. I will embrace nature and appreciate it way more. I have learned that sometimes our obstacles are really that which helps us out. I've learned to leave no trace so others can enjoy, just as well as we did. I learned we shouldn't touch or move or take things from the wilderness because we could be destroying an animal's home. I learned trusting others is something that would really help us in life and I've learned I love the wilderness and the natural thing far more than I would have ever imagined.
This experience has changed my relationship with the earth by allowing me to understand and see first hand nature in action.
