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.”
– Victoria Erickson

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.”
– Maya Angelou
