International Mountain Day

December 11, 2014 is International Mountain Day (today). Mt. Olympus looked as a great objective to seek out mid morning, and it was. Windy, cold and icy at the summit. A true sense of agency. The oncoming storm served much respect for the terrain. 

We hope you were able to succeed in celebrating this day.

"Mountain Day" refers to three different and unrelated events: (1) Mountain Day, a student celebration in some colleges in the United States in which classes are cancelled without prior notice, and the student body heads to the mountains or a park, (2) International Mountain Day, held each year on 11 December, which was established by the UN General Assembly in 2003 to encourage sustainable development in mountains, and (3) Mountain Day, a national holiday in Japan as from 2016." - Source: Mountain Day Wikipedia
