Top 10 Places To Visit in the U.S.

In lieu of a conclusion, I’ll leave you with these quotes from some famous (as well as some not so well known) persons:

“Wilderness is a necessity … They will see what I meant in time. There must be places for human beings to satisfy their souls. Food and drink is not all. There is the spiritual. In some it is only a germ, of course, but the germ will grow.”

“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.”

John Muir, Founder, The Sierra Club

“The wilderness holds answers to questions man has not yet learned to ask.”

Nancy Newhall, Editor & Photography Critic

“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.”

“Awareness is becoming acquainted with environment, no matter where one happens to be. Man does not suddenly become aware or infused with wonder; it is something we are born with. No child need be told its secret; he keeps it until the influence of gadgetry and the indifference of teen-age satiation extinguish its intuitive joy.”

Sigurd Olsen, The Wilderness Society

“The more civilized man becomes, the more he needs and craves a great background of forest wildness, to which he may return like a contrite prodigal from the husks of an artificial life.”

Ellen Burns Sherman, Writer
