To those who have been cold, wet and scared.
To the unplanned bivies.
To those who have taken the fall,
over and over again.
To the nurses and doctors.
To the mask-makers.
To the freelancers.
To the waiters and restaurants.
Coffee shops and small business hustlers.
To the mountain guides and park rangers.
To the athletes with hopes and dreams.
To the climbers.
The skiers and the riders.
To the lifers.
To our community that has come together
by staying apart.
To the mothers.
To those of us who know that suffering
will only make us stronger.
We’ll See You Out There.
