The thing that draws me in to the wilderness is the freedom. Freedom to explore, to be one with yourself and just to get lost within yourself. I wanted to come on this trip because it was an opportunity to see life in a different perspective. We are so focused on making a fast paced life and hardly anyone really stops to look around to take in natural non-man-made creations. I think that the reason people don’t come and have these experiences are either fearing something or just don’t see the reasons to do so. This is an amazing way to look within yourself and see who you truly are and what you are made of. We are all a lot stronger than we believe.

Words cannot even describe how beautiful it is to be on Cloud’s Rest. I feel so at ease, so free to be able to see this. It’s life changing. It makes me want to be here every day of my life. there are no worries, no rush, no needs. Nothing could ever compare to this moment. I want everyone to see this because I don’t think they will be the same after. I think if everyone in the world saw this, they would have a whole other respect for this world and life.
