In the wilderness lies the preservation of the world.
Henry David Thoreau
When wishes come true
All the effort we put in before the trip is finally paying off: we, Lisa and Natalie, are finally in Canada. To be precise, on the Elk River in Strathcona Provincial Park. Of course, how could it be otherwise, we experience directly what “temperate rainforest” means and build up our camp after an extensive canoe trip in pouring rain. The most beautiful thing: the breathtaking view of a gigantic, mossy rock face, surrounded by other mountains covered with conifers and a clear flow of drinking water right in front of us.
I can’t quite believe that we’re really here, and it’s so much more beautiful than I could have imagined.
