Tender memories

  Thank you for Diane Sylvain’s radiant essay, "The Memory of Mountains." I am weary of wild-wo/man hiker goes solo into wilderness and has a Big Moment. Diane’s tender writing summed up for me the essence of the best of High Country News: the illuminating of the threads that connect us to each other, and to place.

Diane’s restrained elegance and big heart were impeccable. She brought welcome tears to my eyes.
