The Wilderness Chapters

National and state parks may provide access and protection to some of the most iconic and beautiful areas in the country, but we can't forget about the hundreds of thousands of acres of land considered to be "wilderness". For those looking to get away from the pavement, commotion, and crowds, wilderness areas give a haven for those looking to escape. And don't be fooled into thinking you'll be missing out, the scenery of some wilderness areas compare even to the best national parks.
