Images of paradise: Earth Day, 2010

The love of the wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only home we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need - if only we had the eyes to see.

- Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire
