“We who so need our urban creations also long for stepping into a forest to take a breath and stare into a landscape which we had no part in creating.” ~ Nick Mollé: The Living Dream: 100 Years of Rocky Mountain National Park
“When we look into the wilderness and see the heart of a scientist beating in this place of wonder and see the soul of an artist breathing the beauty, we can see ourselves, where we fit in.” ~ Nick Mollé: Nature of the Beasts
