Did you know that mountains have a whole day to themselves? That’s right, International Mountain Day is all about creating awareness about the importance of mountains and bringing positive change to the world’s mountains and highlands.
This year the day is particularly focused on raising awareness for the high number of natural hazards in mountain areas and the high vulnerability of mountain communities, as well as drawing attention to sustainable agricultural, pasture and forestry practices as key elements of risk reduction.
We’re all about advocating for the mountains, and we’ve pulled together this photo gallery with some of our favorites from our local stomping grounds.
What are some of your favorite mountains?
