Machu Picchu, Peru (December 2018)

“And then it happens. 
One day, you wake up and you’re in this place where everything feels right. 
Your heart is calm. 
Your soul is lit. 
Your thoughts are positive. 
Your vision is clear.
You’re at peace, at peace with where you’ve been. 
At peace with what you’ve been through – 
And at peace with where you’re headed.”

Nub Peak, Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park, British Columbia (September 2018)

“When you are a mountain person, you understand the brilliance and beauty of contradiction. The way land can be your greatest teacher. How something can be both grounding, yet elevating, intoxicating yet soothing, wild yet serene, intensely primal, yet patient, and cycling yet predictable within shifts and rhythms. Mountains keep us on edge and wrap us up in safety all at once. I don’t know of anything sweeter or more magic inducing than that.”

Black Diamond, Alberta (September 2018)

“By all means, go out into the world and explore. Kiss strangers, kiss friends. Fall in and out of love until your hands and heart are libraries of all the people they have touched. Before long we learn, right down to our bones, that some people are hostels and others are homes.”
– Beau Taplin

Mount Paul, Kamloops, British Columbia (September 2017)

“We write for the same reason that we walk, talk, climb mountains, or swim in oceans – because we can. We have some impulse in us that makes us want to explain ourselves to other human beings. That’s why we dare to paint, why we dare to love someone – because we have the impulse to explain who we are.”
