One Man's Paradise

Into the Wild

“The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”

Jon Krakauer (Into the Wild)


An amazing book and movie, in my opinion, although the life of Chris McCandless, a.k.a. Alexander Supertramp, has been commented to death.

I have visited this place called Round Prairie now many times during this winter and it shows in a different light every time. On this day I was hoping for sun, but I got snowed on instead. Moose and bison like to hang out in this corner of Yellowstone. Only a handful of trees have managed to grow in this meadow that is surrounded by sheer cliffs and towering mountain tops.

  1. Great movie, but haven’t read the book.

    I’ve learned that you can never count on the weather forecast here, so I don’t suppose its any more reliable there.

  2. Beautiful photo and quote! You’re right, the book and movie were amazing. I often find that I do not like the movie as much if I have read the book first, but that did not happen with Into The Wild.
