Finding peace in the mountains

A while ago, we had the pleasure of working with Arc’teryx on an initiative that became Outer Peace; a process that allowed us to explore the science of shinrin yoku / forest bathing.

While many of us look inside for peace, it’s undeniable that often nature holds the answers. Being in nature has physiological effects. Living near the ocean helps me, but often I find myself yearning for a forest or mountain air.

I grew up skiing, and I noticed on this trip that beyond just the natural calm, it also cues for me such fond memories of snow adventures past.

These images are from Mammoth, California, in February 2022.

Thanks for reading.
