There’s a big expanse of land with a small population. It’s one of the biggest states and one of the least populated. Wherever we drove, there was no traffic. Whenever we went to the grocery store, there was no more than three people in line, most of the time, not even one person.
When floating down the river, we saw people fly fishing, birds feeding their young, deer and schools of fish. I’ve never felt so close to nature floating down that river, not one building, power pole or any man-made structure in sight, just nature.
