Mountains are Real


Mountains are real, not a sanitised packaged, curated experience.


Mountains are real, raw, unpredictable, unpleasant, challenging.


Mountains are real, beautiful, inspiring, uplifting, enriching.


Mountains are real, they are happy smiles, intense rain, open fires, wild winds, soft beds, snowstorms, good friends.


Mountains are real, not the pitch in the brochure or the well researched tag line, they don't come in a box with a ribbon.


Mountains are real, ever changing, ancient parts of the natural world, sculpted by, wind, rain, snow and time.


Mountains are real, not a commodity, so lose your selfish needs, expectations, your GPS, shortcut to google and your belief in a controlled curated experience.


Mountains are real, so close your phone, open your eyes and engage your intelligence.


Mountains are real, they will not sell you anything, they will give you back a stronger you, more determined, wiser, enriched by the beauty and strengthened by the challenges.


Mountains are real, they don't owe you anything, they don't snow for you, the sun doesn't shine for you and they are not wrapped in plastic.


Mountains are real and with your heart and eyes open they will give you a lifetime of experience.
