Hiking the alpine can be beautiful, frustrating, challenging and freeing. Freeing not only because you are physically removed from everyday stresses, but also because you are free from choice. Parenting choices, food choices, chore choices, work choices, money choices, relationship choices, so many choices. When you hike the alpine, clarity comes in the form of tangible goals that are either reached or missed. I hope the colourful simplicity of these scenes inspires the same sense of clarity I achieve when hiking in the mountains.
