I wished to live deliberately; Camping Leavenworth WA

 Glacier View Campground
Glacier view Campground, WA

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach,

on icicle creek road, Leavenworth, WA

and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. 

Eightmile Campground, icicle creek, Leavenworth, WA
 I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practice resignation, unless it was quite necessary.

I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, 

to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life,

icicle creek, Leavenworth, WA
  to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms..." - Henry David Thoreau
