This view is seen from the iconic Border Route Trail. I have no way of describing with words how this view reminds me of the importance of preserving wilderness.
“There is a magic feel of a paddle and the movement of a canoe, a magic compounded of distance, adventure, solitude, and peace. The way of a canoe is the way of the wilderness and a freedom almost forgotten. It is an antidote to insecurity, the open door to waterways of ages past and a way of life with profound and abiding satisfactions.”
