“The farther one gets into the wilderness, the greater is the attraction to its lonely freedom.“
– Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt
I love the quiet solitude of being immersed in the wilderness, don’t you?
It can be difficult to get away from the madness of the world, but when you’re out in nature, you can feel a hint of freedom, if only for a moment.
It can be hard to describe why so many of us love to hike hours and hours into the natural world, but I think Teddy Roosevelt captures a part of this sentiment well.
