"I'd rather wake up in the middle of nowhere than in any city on earth."
Steve McQueen

Badlands, Coyote Mountains

"We have always needed and always will need, so long as we are human, a big rugged expanse of country beyond the back door, beyond the city limits, where a man can get lost if he wants to, where a woman can get lost, where each and all can exercise the most elementary and essential of all freedoms: the freedom to move one's body through three-dimensional space without obstruction by fences, walls, traffic, steel."

Edward Abbey

Always I shall be one who loves the wilderness:

Swaggers and softly creeps between the mountain peaks; I shall listen long to the sea's brave music;
I shall sing my song above the shriek of desert winds. gaily, live deeply and wrest from life some of its infinite possibilities.

Everett Ruess

Go my sons, burn your books.  Buy yourself stout shoes.  Get away to the mountains, the valleys, the shores of the seas, the deserts, and the deepest recesses of the earth....

Peter Severinus

With beauty before me, I walk.
With beauty behind me, I walk.
With beauty below me, I walk.
With beauty above me, I walk.
With beauty all around me, I walk
