“If you know wilderness in the way that you know love, you would be unwilling to let it go. … This is the story of our past and it will be the story of our future.”
– Terry Tempest Williams
Everything about visiting Denali National Park and Preserve astonished me and made me think. The National Park Service had some flyers on a desk that said, “NPS 2014 Challenge: ‘What does wilderness mean to you?'” Park visitors were invited to submit photos or stories or multi-media projects through any of the customary social media outlets using #MyWilderness.
I submitted some photos via Instagram (see the right-hand sidebar of this page for my Instagram stream), but I really thought the question and the experience of Denali deserved deeper work. “Snow Globe” was the result:
I’m proud to say that it was chosen by the National Park Service to be featured on their website during 2014.
How cool is that?!
