Watching the light slowing change as the sun inches towards the horizon from our temporary home pitched on the edge of a Wilderness lake is one of the many simple pleasures that our Year in the Wilderness affords.
With only 6 weeks left in the Wilderness, the idea that we will be trading the silence and solitude of the Wilderness for the hustle, bustle, and conviences of the modern world is beginning to sink in. Warm, idyllic weather make this an especially pleasant time to be in the Wilderness. We are consciously trying to appreciate the million moments that are happening all around us so that we can bring them with us when we leave the Wilderness. I hope our consious observations will help us share this national treasure more deeply when we leave.
