What I want to get out of this is to be able to walk around and enjoy it, not just do it because I have to but because I enjoy it. I want to emotionally be able to talk to someone and open up without a problem. I want to get to know my inner spirit and see what kind of person I really am. Mentally I do not want to give in, I want to get through obstacles without a challenge.


Meeting Shelton Johnson.

To nourish others I will be more open about myself and more considerate of others.

Wilderness to me means freedom, an escape from civilization. It also is peace and quiet. The importance is if it weren’t for wilderness, these getaways from stress and other problems. It also is a beauty that shouldn’t be messed with.


Rock skipping in the Tuolumne River

I am free
I see beauty as far as I see
I feel the amazing breeze
I hear my friends talking
I smell nature
I taste my chapstick
I walked many miles
I climbed many more
I wish everybody could see it
I want this moment to last
I am at home


Cleaning up old fire rings.

I want to ambassador for illegal immigrants rights.
My audience are all the people who think it is wrong.
I would show how they treated someone just because they’re not from here.
