Do you mean the big W?

One thought on “Do you mean the big W?”

  1. Your pictures brought back memories…twenty-mumble years ago…paddling in the Boundary Waters Wilderness into a gale of a headwind. The person in the bow was faltering. My own arms were becoming more and more leaden. The other canoes were ahead of us. The thought came to me that if I slowed or quit, the canoe would swing broadside to the wind and possibly swamp. It all depended on me. There was no safety net. It was one of the most bracing and illuminating moments of my life.
    There is the on-going discussion…does wilderness still have value to people who will never set foot in it? What is that value? How do we present it?
    Good thoughts…good memories.
