“The clearest way into the universe is through a forest wilderness.”     John Muir

Definition of Wilderness

Cambridge Dictionary says

  1. An area of land that has not been used to grow crops or had towns  and roads built  on it, especially  because it is  difficult  to live in as a result  of its extremely cold or hot weather or bad earth
  2. An outside area in which plants are left to grow naturally or untidily.
  3. If someone  previously in a position of power is now in the wilderness, they have lost their power  and it is not clear if or how they will get it back

This is a quote from the United States Congress when they passed  ‘The Wilderness Act of 1964’

“A wilderness, in contrast with those areas where man and his own works dominate the landscape, is hereby recognized as an area where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain.”   Source- Wildernessproject.org

Looks like maintaining the Wilderness is left to Environmentalists.
