Wilderness Life.

“Solitude has its finer side. The saints of old, when seeking to cleanse themselves from taint of worldliness and get closer to the source of prophecy, went singly into the desert and bided there alone. So now our lone adventurer, unsaintly as he may have been among men, experiences an exaltation, finds healing and encouragement in wilderness life.

When twilight falls, and shadows merge in darkness, the single-handed camper muses before the fire that comforts his bivouac and listens to the low, sweet voices of the night, which are never heard in full harmony save by those who sit silent and alone.”

-from Camping and Woodcraft by Horace Kephart

(Thanks for that one, little brother. Love, Jordan)
