Nature Is The Benchmark

Wilderness is a benchmark,
a touchstone in the wilderness we can see where we have come from,
where we are going, and how far we have gone.

The wilderness is the only unsullied Earth sample of
the forces generally at work in the Universe.

Kenneth Bower

this applies to anywhere "out of town" - just find a spot away from it all and the same feelings kick in - lovely quote
