This photo was taken by P, a West Coast woman who loves how the mountains make her feel. She watched as her mom struggled with depression during a long illness that she eventually succumbed to. P herself struggles on and off with mild depression and anxiety that is controlled but plays a definite part in her life. In spite of that she loves the outdoors, travel and a good book. These are the things that give her the greatest joy and peace, along with family and friends.
About this photo: “This particular picture was taken on Mount Rainier in Washington State. A team member negotiates a tricky and shrinking snow bridge to arrive at Base Camp Schurman, the base for the summit climb the next day.”
