The Hubbard Glacier

In God’s wildness lies the hope of the world – the great fresh, unblighted, unredeemed wilderness.
John Muir

 

Last light on the Ice

Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is symbolic as well as actual beauty in the migration of the birds, the ebb and flow of the tides, the folded bud ready for the spring. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature – the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after the winter.
Rachel Carson

 

Follow the Crystal Clear Road

To the lover of wilderness, Alaska is one of the most wonderful countries in the world.
John Muir

 

360* of Pure Wilderness

And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.
William Shakespeare

Color in the fog

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.
– John Muir

 

Too much for Words


The West of which I speak is but another name for the Wild, and what I have been preparing to say is, that in Wildness is the preservation of the World.
– Henry David Thoreau
