No matter the storm that has you pinned down on a mountainside, it cannot undo the miles hiked, the scenery captured, the topics explored in conversation, the expansion of your world map.  No matter the headwinds that blow against you, it cannot undo the miles pedaled, the high speed descents, and the cols climbed.  If you find yourself off the map it cannot undo the journey that has taken you to this place, the canyon walls echoing your thoughts and the river singing your praise.  An experience once embedded in your spirit is yours.  It rewards you with permanent change in exchange for your exploration.  You may leave no trace of your journey through the wilderness but it has left its mark indelibly on your soul.
