We spent most of the day “at home” in our tent, writing in our journals. The temperature is supposed to hover around freezing for a few days so it will probably be Monday or Tuesday before the ice is safe for us to venture out onto again.
I found myself ruminating over the following quote by Sigurd Olson today. “Some places should be preserved from development or exploitation for they satisfy a human need for solace, belonging and perspective. In the end we turn to nature in a frenzied chaotic world, there to find silence, oneness, wholeness, spiritual release,” – Sigurd Olson
The world seems so much more frenzied and chaotic than it was in 1977 when Sigurd Olson shared these words at a public hearing in Ely about the formation of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
It seems to me Wilderness is now even more precious than it was when the Wilderness Act was passed in 1964. #wildernessyear #savetheBWCA #Wilderness #boundarywaters @seekoutside #getoutstayout #instagood
