This site started as a place to share the inspiration that I find from being in the mountains. It’s a non commercial venture, community and environmental in orientation, and focused on human-powered adventure.
Clearly, there are lots of other people who are are equally addicted. Thanks for all the messages of late. Visitation keeps building, in fact remarkably so. Partly I assume this is because there is so much going on that impacts on the mountains – the sections dealing with alpine grazing, prospecting in national parks, private developments in parks, and logging, are all getting major attention.
In spite of these and other threats and issues, there are lots of good reasons to be out in the mountains. As the saying goes: “Stuff politics, let’s dance” (or ride/ walk/ run/ climb / paddle/ or maybe just sit and enjoy).
Mountain Journal is also on facebook, where the focus is on celebration of everything mountain.
It would be great if people felt inspired to contribute photos. The photo of the day posting features a pic of a favourite place: please feel free to send yours to firstname.lastname@example.org or post them directly on the FB page.
