Did you hear that? Me either. No humming of car engines, music blaring, or machinery working. It is the sound of complete silence; a silence that can only be found in the wilderness. Only when you truly focus, can you hear the leaves rustling in the wind, birds singing a sweet lullaby, and water splashing on shore. These are the natural sounds of the world masked by the overwhelming sounds of civilization. Take time to find a wilderness area and appreciate the true sounds of nature whether it is a small cove in a local park or a vacation to a National Park such as Isle Royale where I had such an experience.
