The Loneliness of the Backpacker

Recreation, Health & Fitness
Nothing beats strapping a pack on your back and heading out into the mountains, into the wilderness.  It is a time of contemplation, a time of renewal, a time of adventure. It is being alone with the Ultimate, confronting the Ultimate, looking the Ultimate in the face.  It is a time of loneliness, not a loneliness of despair, but a loneliness of Freedom.
