The secret of the mountain is that the mountains simply exist, as I do myself: the mountains exist simply, which I do not. The mountains have no "meaning," they are meaning; the mountains are. The sun is round. I ring with life, and the mountains ring, and when I can hear it; there is a ringing that we share. I understand all this, not in my mind but in my heart, knowing how meaningless it is to try to capture what cannot be expressed, knowing that mere words will remain when I read it all again, another day.”

Being in the mountains is a privilege, and our Outreach Programme is always in need of extra members to help share this privilege with various groups of children. Urs and Suzanne's meet report sums it up brilliantly: a fun time was had by all.
