A pillar of resilience and fortitude; mountains welcome adventure and freedom. Each unique, yet universal and essential to how we understand and experience community within our environment. Elevated by mountaintops, we reflect on our experiences in tranquility and awe. Mount Crested Butte overlooks our Town here in Colorado. The other peak, Ama Dablam, translates as “Mother’s Necklace” overlooking Dingboche in Nepal. Prayer flags present powerful energy with their symbolism through five colorful elements (sky, air, fire, water and earth).
As they are weathered by the environment, they release blessings, similar to the prayer wheel as it spins. The unification of our cultural values can be celebrated through our love of the mountains.
