  What is wilderness?
  Posted by: kayamedic on Sep-01-12 6:36 PM (EST)
 

I just did a Yukon River trip.

By my personal definition the trip itself was not a wilderness trip. There was not a day when we did not see someone on the river. We passed some fishing camps and a town and some mining operations.

But hiking in the woods following old trails out of camp one could get into trouble quickly. It might be an old prospectors trail or a bear trail..and it would be easy to get turned around..and no one find you for years. So is that wilderness?

I think wilderness is a personal decision. One mans is not another mans
