For those who live in the mountains, the significance of these wondrous creations can not be measured. They are respected and loved for their many contributions to the lifestyles we love, and to us as individuals. We come to know their effect on the weather patterns that bring us the precipitation for our livelihood and well-being, from the first snowflakes of winter to the last trickles of runoff in the river. They draw us to them in awe, finding inspiration and opportunities to recreate and reconnect. Their size and presence creates a sense of familiarity. The feeling that you are home.
“The mountains are calling, and I must go” – John Muir
