Wilderness is a place where I can go to forget about all the petty problems that occur in normal society, it’s an oasis where you can truly live in the moment, a beautiful place where nothing has been manufactured or built, it’s just purely authentic. I just have the most wonderful feeling of peace and freedom in it. Of course Wilderness has value, its humanity's roots. We did not originate in cities or any urban places, we came from the same wilderness that surrounds me now. I believe that we should never forget our roots, especially when they are so wonderful.
This was probably one of my best experiences in my life. There's not too many opportunities for someone like me to get out to a place that can truly be called Wilderness and to have gone here is just remarkable.
