One of the blogs that I check regularly, Ghost Cowboy, recently had a picture of an Indian family camped near a pristine river valley in Montana, circa 1905. It reminded how far our society had come and how “simple” life could be (although even the simple life has its complexities). I instantly thought how much of a shame it is that such places no longer exist in today’s world of concrete, cars, and wires. In fact, a reader also had the same thought and left a comment, to which the author responded with another post, showing off modern day pictures of “wilderness” and nature’s beauty. The author also links to TurnpikeCruiser.com for more scenic photos and information. The post was extremely motivating and I am considering visiting a few of the places on my upcoming vacation.
