People have the right to mountain services when they put themselves at risk because mountain climbing is dangerous despite your expertise and unpredictable weather affects even skilled climbers.

Also, even if some climbers have experience, they cannot outdo the weather. Those who disagree think climbers prepare for all weather; this argument is wrong because even though climbers prepare,…

    have ever seen, Beartooth Mountain. The first time I see the mountain I am astounded anything could possibly be so immense. The sun catches the snow at the top of the mountain shooting light down into the Valley below. Then my view slides down the mountain, numerous pine trees seem to wrap around the entire mountain like a child in their blanket. This is the moment I realize it is amazing that later today, I am going to be at the top. As I approach the mass of pine trees, I begin to smell the…

    The White Mountains are a completely different animal than the Appalachian Mountains. Even so, as I hiked up Craggy Gardens off of the Blue Ridge Parkway just outside of Asheville, North Carolina a couple of days ago, I was forced to remember the first stretch of the Presidential Traverse in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The climb was gradual at first, but steady, with a low hanging forest and a stream running not far off the trail. Not 10 minutes in I was having thoughts akin to, “Oh my…
