While living at his cabin in the woods surrounding Walden Pond, Thoreau noted that if all people lived as simply as he did, thieving and robbery would be unknown.
When we first started Adventure Archives, we wanted to discover what the outdoors could teach us about ourselves and our society. Why did nature seem to bring out the best in people? We set out to answer the question "what is lacking in our civilized lives that wilderness has to offer?"
Today, we adventure into the forests of our own home state to take in the lessons that our wild Earth freely gives away.
