"PEACE of MIND" by KAREN WILES
What sets a canoeing expedition apart is that it purifies you more rapidly and inescapably than any other travel. Travel a thousand miles by train and you are a brute; pedal five hundred on a bicycle and you remain basically a bourgeois; paddle a hundred in a canoe and you are already a child of nature.
— Pierre Elliott Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada 1968-1984
For some, the idea of a wilderness trip is a bit of a daunting task. The “what-ifs” are endless: what if I get lost, run out of food, sprain an ankle, get eaten by a bear, etc. Truth is you’re much more likely to get hit by a bus on your way to work than you are to be eaten by a bear.
There is, however, a romanticism associated with the wilderness. John Wesley Powell, Marquette and Joliet, Lewis and Clark, Jim Bridger, Alexander MacKenzie, and dozens of other adventurous men set out to see what was beyond the horizon. It was often more of the same stuff that was on this side of the horizon, but once in a while they’d see something that took their breath away. As William Clark said, " in view! O! The joy!”
