"There is a pleasure in the pathless woods;
There is a rapture on the lonely shore;
There is society, where none intrudes.
I love not man the less, but Nature more..."
I have this poem written in my "Rite in the Rain" notebook that I carry in my backpack and it never fails to inspire me and remind me, why I spend so much time in the wilderness. So as a good tip for the day, be sure to bring a good notebook, preferably one of the waterproof-rainproof kind that you can keep good notes about all your dirt time. I bring along a small pack of colored pencils and make simple drawings of things I observe. With this practice, along with taking digital photos, you gain a more intimate relationship with the wilderness and nature around you. And that is what it is all about.... Happy Exploring.
