For 17 Years Forest Service Land Posted by: SupremelyArrogant on Jul-07-12 11:37 PM (EST)
Was literally a stone's throw from my door. I once shot a deer while standing in my doorway. I used to have a trail maintenance business. If you want to get away from the crowds try restrictive river. The Green at the Gates of Lodore or the Selway come to mind. The Verde in February is nice.
Wilderness is a personal experience unique to the visitor. It's not about bragging rights. Most wilderness travelers I know best express their wilderness experiences with a knowing smile. It comes from being there. It doesn't translate very well into writen words. If you want a dialogue about wilderness visit one with a friend.
