“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountain is going home; that wildness is necessity; that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life.”

  1. Hey now...The protrusion in front of 'that guy' is clearly a function of storing two water bottles in the waders. Although this picture defines the word 'chuffed' in an accurate way, it by no means suggests a man of such physical prowess is 'puffed with fat'. Move on...Nothing to see here!
