“Something will…

“Something will have gone out of us as a people if we ever let the remaining wilderness be destroyed … We simply need that wild country available to us, even if we never do more than drive to its edge and look in.”
― Wallace Stegner, The Sound of Mountain Water

…and with the road less paved begins the journey of looking in, of seeing far above the short sedge grasses of spring in the flooded marshes to the deep blue sky beyond. Everything is sound, scent, sight – a lovers touch of sensory overload luring me off the paved roads and into the lonely arms of central Wisconsin’s natural areas.
