Through a Forest Wilderness

The Little River flowing through Floyd County in Virginia. “The clearest way into the universe is through a forest wilderness.” John Muir

“A wilderness…is hereby recognized as an area where….man himself is a visitor who does not remain.”     The Wilderness Act of 1964

50 years ago this month congress passed The Wilderness Act of 1964 and it was signed into law by Lyndon B. Johnson.  There are now over 750 federally protected natural places throughout the country.

“All things are connected.  Whatever befalls the earth, befalls the children of the earth.”                                                                    Chief Seathl

And so I do my part to protect my little “wilderness” areas;  the wild places in Virginia.
