reading our liability waiver. Even if you don't go with us, please seek qualified instruction.
|"And there, at the camp we had around us the elemental world of water and light, and earth and air. We felt the presences of the
wild creatures, the river, the trees, the stars. Though we had our troubles, we had them in a true perspective. The universe, as we
could see any night, is unimaginably large, and mostly dark. We knew we needed to be together more than apart."
