W. vs. w
To me wilderness means a place away from you usual environment that you can go to reconnect with yourself, your peers and mostly nature. A place where you can enjoy all the wonderful views that God created for us. A place where we get to appreciate nature and all the animals.
This trip made me really appreciate not only nature but the people around me. Some of them might have been strangers but after all the sweat and some tears we all grew closer together. The trip made me understand that all that we have we should be grateful for. For example, just a simple bathroom can make a big difference in the wilderness. The WildLink trip made me really grow because after pushing myself all week and finally making it to the top gives you a great satisfaction and the fact that we can use this trip to understand that after all the struggle at the end we get to enjoy peace. For me a good way to take this experience back home would be by reuniting our group and doing different adventures or just by helping our community and giving a little back.
