What is Wilderness?

Ampersand Mountain what is wilderness

“Truly wild places should be for the wild creatures that live there, and only secondarily to give us revelatory experiences. If we go into them it should be as a privilege, and on the same terms as the creatures that live there, unarmed and on foot… I realised what touched me most was not wilderness as a special, defined place, but the quality of wildness.”
