“We turned and sailed away, joining the outgoing bergs, while “Gloria in excelsis” still seemed to be sounding over all the white landscape, and our burning hearts were ready for any fate, feeling that whatever the future might have in store, the treasures we had gained would enrich our lives forever.”
John Muir in Wilderness Essays
This is the question. What do we take away from our wilderness experiences? Why do we spend our time in the out of doors? We can only answer that our lives are enriched. And we can answer that it leaves us ready to walk into future experiences with renewed curiosity and open attitudes. Our experiences Insert joy into our daily existance. They clean the slate to prepare mental space for the next trail.
