As we paddled down the Upper River Breaks National Monument, I was constantly reminded of the Corps of Discovery’s observations recorded by Lewis and Clark regarding the presumably untouched wilderness.
My time with WRFI has been empowering, invigorating, and humbling. I will take this experience with me for the rest of my life. I am excited to enter the “real world,” still as myself, but as a stronger, more mindful version of me.
