Mountains are not stadiums where I satisfy my ambition to achieve,
they are the cathedrals where I practice my religion.
I go to them as humans go to worship.
From their lofty summits I view my past, dream of the future and, with an unusual acuity am allowed to experience the present moment. My vision cleared, my strength renewed.
Anatoli Boukreev, Russian Kazakhstani mountaineer
In the mountains I celebrate creation on each journey I am reborn.
