"The trail doesn't change people at all. The trail is the means by which transformation takes place. The trail itself doesn't draw attention to itself. It's what happens to you along the trail. So along the trail is where you encounter, early in the morning just as the sun is coming up, a mule deer that walks in front of you just 10 feet away and looks at you as if you're late, or why are you here, or what are we going to talk about now? The trail is what leads you to that point right around the bend where you see that last light of the sun, that alpenglow on some far off peak. And you're scrambling looking at your map trying to find out, what's the name of that peak? It's so beautiful! And of course at that point, that peak doesn't have a name, because the sun itself has made it nameless." -Shelton Johnson
