Bridger Wilderness (Middle Fork Lake), Wyoming - August 16 to 23 2003

A mountain is the best medicine for a troubled mind. Seldom does man ponder his own insignificance. He thinks he is master of all things. He thinks his world is without bonds. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Only when he tramps the mountains alone, communing with nature, observing other insignificant creatures about him, to come and go as he will, does he awaken to his own short-lived presence on earth Finis Mitchell, 1901-1995
