“A man on foot, on horseback or on a bicycle will see more, feel more, enjoy more in one mile than the motorized tourists can in a hundred miles.”

Desert Solitaire

 

While we all use motorized transport to get to places it is important to slowdown and remember that not everyplace has to be reachable by car, or bike, or horseback or even foot.  Some places should just remain wild and free from human intrusion all together.  And I will be the first to admit to sometimes being guilty of rushing somewhere because I want to get to THAT place.

"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
