My name is Carly and I am an environmentalist, photographer, and vagabond. In May of 2017, I left my desk job to travel the US and Canada. I am seeking wild places, and wish to encourage others to do the same. I believe that the simple act of visiting a wild place cleanses the spirit. There is nothing better for the soul. That is the true value of wilderness: its sacred healing. By understanding this, perhaps preserving and protecting wild places can become a more urgent goal for all of us.
