Despite this capability, I cannot help but think that something about this conquerable natural world will always be greater than me. Something about these tall trees fills me with an unshakeable sense of reverence and awe that makes me want to preserve this snapshot of beauty for its own sake and for the sake of all who will follow me...."   Follow this link to keep reading.
