A few days ago we found our selves traveling into a still headwind, constantly scrapping frozen slush from our skis and toboggans, and setting up camp by headlamp. We were tired when we zipped up our sleeping bags around midnight, but it’s the hard days that stay with us long after we leave the Wilderness.
The challenges that Wilderness travel often affords are one of Wilderness’s greatest (but often overlooked) assets, and are an important reason to protect Wilderness for future generations.
What is the biggest challenge you have faced in the Wilderness? How did it affect you? It is important to share those moments with others. Tell your elected officials about how those challenges have shaped you. The changes Wilderness imparts on us ripple through our lives and our communities long after we leave the Wilderness, which is one important reason we need to @savetheBWCA.
