"The wilderness is a spiritual necessity, an antidote to the high pressure of modern life, a means to regaining serenity and equillibrium. I have found that people go to the wilderness for many things, but the most important of these is perspective.  They may think they go for the fishing or the scenery or the companionship, but in reality it is something far deeper. They go to the wilderness for the good of their souls."  ~Sigurd F. Olson
