    running around without any clothes while shooting off fire works as well. In addition they will be digging a huge pit and heating it up with water from the creek, under a make shift shelter of bush , branches and such. You know a sauna. This was going to be a party to beat all parties. Of course, we were stunned. This Ranger was allowing all these unauthorized people to come and desecrate this campground, and potentially setting the forest on fire. So we all waited in anticipation for this huge party to start in the late afternoon. Around four in the afternoon three people arrived for this big event. And that was it, just four people to party until dawn. They kept to themselves, so we told our usual campfire stories about our backpacking adventures. Which as it turned out were more interesting then the other one across the campground. We all turned in, but Mark said they did set some fire works off, but it was not anything to talk about. However, this non-event became a great story to tell around our…

    I grew up in a church filled with traditions. One of these traditions was started by our youth pastor’s father: Wilderness Trail. Throughout my elementary years I would hear talk of the annual youth trip up to Virginia, and in sixth grade, I finally had the chance to go. Wilderness Trail is a backpacking ministry located in the town of Troutdale. Each summer, groups come and go on a five day backpacking trip on the Appalachian Trail. Five days of carrying a 30 pound pack on your back in the…

    Canvas Tents: These are generally also called cabin tents, for the reason that these are so big and sturdy you could almost do a comparison into a cabin house. They offercomfort and space, and protection like hardly any other tent could, due to its size and bulk. But that by itself is actually a downside, because it's hard to lug around with you a tent that big, even if they are collapsed. They're also harder to put together. Here is the kind of tent made use of by the military and are normally…

    The Wyoming backcountry is stunning. There is an infinite blanket of trees in every direction. The sky has two moods either happy: blue with cotton ball clouds or angry: a stormy scary black color. The air smells like sage and pine -- fresh and crisp. July, 2015, along with 11 close friends, 2 counselors, and a trip leader I went hiking in the backcountry of Wyoming on a 6 day backpacking trip. The air smells like sage and pine -- fresh and crisp, overpowers the salty, moist smell of the other…

    Who Cares Speech For my attention step of my Who Cares speech, I used pictures of my hiking trip so it would be easier to relate to. In addition to making it easier to relate to, it made it easier to understand the concepts I was talking about and how pretty the trails were. I also asked them if they had ever been hiking in Oregon so the audience could have a direct link to my topic. This made it even more effortless to relate and find a connection because all of the class lives…

    Wild, this book in itself, was a journey for me; at first not appreciating the book nor the story it held, but after reading it I saw why it is highly talked about. Not only was the story interesting, but it was the way Cheryl Strayed wrote it that made it come to life. Wild does not just tell a journey, but makes you feel as if you are on the journey yourself. Strayed wrote Wild from her life story, but almost each sentence had some kind of parallel meaning to it. The main theme I thought that…

    Thank you for your opportunity to review and comment on the Spirit Mountain EAW. I strongly support the proposed plans because I feel like the community benefits of the plans outweigh the potential environmental risks. A huge part of Duluth is the amount of outdoor recreational activities that one can do here. Spirit mountain is a tremendous recreational area and I believe that by expanding and creating more opportunities for outdoor activity, the community of Duluth will become happier and…
