How Time in the Wilderness Teaches Us Who We Are

Wilderness expeditions teach us who we really are. Our feet ache. It’s raining. Night noises rattle our confidence. Through the obstacles, we carry on. 

We hike over mountains because we believe we can. And if we think we cannot, we are right. We learn to accept help out of necessity, despite our fierce independence.

When weather socks us in. We make the best of it. We make decisions weighing adventure, risk, safety. We make memories. We put the needs of our dear ones first. We marvel at nature’s beauty. 

We greet each moment with our finest and best, or we do not. Either way, we find out who we really are.
