Oregon's Mt. McLoughlin. (Kathleen Kenna photo)

Mt. McLoughlin, OR. (Kathleen Kenna photo)

I grew up in the flatlands of Canada, so didn’t see my first mountain until I left home and traveled in Mexico, at 21.

It was love at first sight.

Mountains are so much a part of me that I was married on a mountain, at Whistler’s  Our Lady of the Mountains Church.

Now I live near the Oregon-California border, surrounded by mountains, I wake every morning to the sight of snow-dusted peaks.

My gratitude soars.
