“Leave no trace,” you can see these plastered on the signs in almost every park you visit. They are meant to preserve the beauty of the area, but what the sign doesn’t say is that the park will leave a trace in you. You can never go back to seeing it for the first time. Never again will you gasp, stand as still as a rock, completely overtaken by the beauty. The scenery will follow you, it will fill your day dreams. It will become the backdrop to your imagination when reading a novel. So, leave no trace but allow the land to leave a trace in you.
