Why Climb a Mountain? Itís not just because itís there, itís more about having that inner desire to explore. And not just to explore the earths physical aspects, but also to explore and experience oneís personal limits and abilities, a feeling you canít imitate in everyday living. Then to add to that, being able to overcome some of Mother Natureís ultimate power is exhilarating, but not just for the achievement and glory, but to show respect for mother earth and to express oneís total admiration for her strength, and that you will always appreciate the opportunity to have experienced, and temporarily overcome, just some of her greatness. And in return we see greatness in ourselves.
