I believe our connection to nature (or lack thereof) is at the root of the problem of human existence. I also believe that our constant search for meaning and spirituality can indeed be bridged with immersion in nature. That being said, I am all for sharing nature with everyone who is able to appreciate and or steward our natural resources including the resource of peace, tranquility and aesthetic beauty, however I cant help but feel cynical about the writing of these articles and the detriment they may cause by overuse of those who would not treat nature with the respect and gentleness that it deserves and requires to sustain itself. Thanks to this article I can now picture Coldwater Camp on a Saturday night overrun with tents and loud music and trash to be left behind. Maybe an article explaining nature’s frailties and proper treatment or trail and camp etiquette would help to preserve the experience for all those in the years and decades to come. Please don’t write any more articles that would turn our beautiful unspoiled backcountry in to those ‘filthy’ places that you refer to in the beginning of your article. Looks like I’ll have to be travelling the backcountry during the week now! Thanks!
