"Human beings have needs that are more than just physical and social; we are spiritual animals. I believe we have a built-in need to experience wilderness and nature, a craving that can be fulfilled partially by knowing that there are such cathedrals to nourish the soul. In trashing wilderness areas that only time and nature create, we diminish ourselves with the loss of an integral component of our spiritual makeup."
