Happy Thanksgiving!

Among many other things, I’m thankful for mountain peaks that are still pristine,

places with southern exposures that look like this,

northern slopes still loaded with snow in July,

and little critters that still live in these beautiful places as they have for thousands of years.

Most of all I’m thankful that there are still folks around who also love places like these!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
