On this day in 1978, President Jimmy Carter signed into law the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness Act. I’m pretty happy about that.

“Wilderness is more than lakes, rivers, and timber along the shores, more than fishing or just camping. It is the sense of the primeval, of space, solitude, silence and the eternal mystery.” – Sigurd Olson
