“Having lived here in the valley for most of the last 25 years, I know how important our mountains are to us. They nurture us, inspire us, protect us and give us a quality of life that others can only envy. The skies envelope us in an ever-changing light show; the rocks give us strength; we are constantly entertained and challenged by our mountains”.
“But, amazing and powerful as they are, it’s important to remember the world outside and get those creative, cosmic juices flowing. By going out into that world and seeing the diversity of people and places that make up our little planet, whether it’s Toronto or Tuscany, Montana or Morocco, we can come home to the paradise we call our mountains and truly appreciate them as part of the beauty of this world”.
