“Mother Nature is our teacher - reconnecting us with Spirit, waking us up and liberating our hearts. When we can transcend our fear of the creatures of the forest, then we become one with all that is; we enter a unity of existence with our relatives - the animals, the plants and the land that sustain us.”
~Sylvia Jolson, The Joy of Bears

“Only by going alone in silence, without baggage, can one truly get into the heart of the wilderness.”
~John Muir

As we watched our bush pilot leave, I had mixed emotions...I couldn’t wait for our wilderness adventure to begin...and yet knowing that we were the only humans in a 30 mile range was more than a little unnerving. We had no cell phone or way of communicating with the outside world. We were truly alone. What an amazing experience!

“When we return wild animals to nature, we merely return to them what was already theirs. For man cannot give wild animals freedom. They can merely take it away.”

“Great men are like Eagles, and build their nest on some lofty solitude.”

This Eagle (@davefilon  named him George) came to see us every day as we camped in Homer, AK. In this shot he was letting me know that I was getting a little too close.
