What makes a wilderness adventure legendary?
- For some, the legendary part represents human achievement in overcoming challenges. That’s okay, but not what we mean here by legendary.
- For us, the word legendary refers to a wonderous, total immersion in the wilderness. The focus is not human achievement, but rather, the spectacular legendary wilderness!
- So, for these legendary wilderness adventures, you will seldom if ever see the person. On the other hand, you’ll see and celebrate the wilderness!
Common Characteristics of These Legendary Wilderness Adventures
- Total immersion in the wilderness for the greater part of a day.
- Pathless route to and beyond multiple landmark high points.
- Often, crossing from one major wilderness area to another through an artificial human boundary.
