Today is International Mountain Day and it is a reminder of how much #MountainsMatter. It’s more than tourism and outdoor recreation. Mountains are early indicators of climate change. They provide 60-80 percent of the world’s freshwater. Mountain areas are home for almost one billion people, and half the population depends on them for water, food and clean energy. Let’s not forget to speak up and be the voice of the mountains. Photo: the east face of Aoraki/Mt. Cook, the highest peak in New Zealand. In the second slide, you can see our group retreating (tiny dots circled in pink), not finding the snow conditions we desired to ski the face. @annakeelingguiding @cody_hughes91 Photo: @rob.lea
