from Your Friends in the Great Northwoods in Ely, Minnesota

"When in the wilderness, all else is forgotten. One does not count as wasted, any time spent watching the clouds, the trees, or the water. Wilderness to the people of America is a spiritual necessity, an antidote to the high pressure of modern life, a means of regaining serenity and equilibrium. I have found that people go to the wilderness for many things, but most important of these is perspective."   Sigurd F. Olson
