Driving back from the Salmon River gave me a lot of time to reflect on my time there, from thinking about the sound of roaring whitewater to the twinkling constellations untarnished by the pollution of mankind. And as I pass more gas stations and billboards on the side of the road, I realize that the world needs more places like the Frank Church Wilderness. Places where young men and young women can experience wonders away from technology, where older adults can let go of the world for a while, to slow down and smell the roses. Because life’s too short to go full speed without taking a minute to look at the world around you. So, just take a minute and live life on the wild side. You’ll be amazed by what you can find there.
Life is too short to go full speed
