I love that this photo is so simple, and still tells such a powerful story. We spend our weekends hiking to get out and high above the city streets. The silhouette of a man (Radek) proudly conquers another peak; the layers of ridges and valleys behind him remind us how far he has come. If you ever needed reminding...this is why we go outdoors.
