The mountains are harsh. Terrain and weather, and the reality of it all. When things turn, they usually do it fast, with very little warning. With that reality comes awareness and total focus. The body working at 100% of its capacity, and often going beyond what’s perceived as possible.
Stress. Desperation sometimes. But focus and determination guide.
Refuge. In harsh places they offer simplicity and the chance of a peaceful moment.
Seek. Unwind in that refuge. Let the mind and body rest.
