Happy International Mountain Day!

Welcome back to National Parks and other public lands with T! 

In 2002, the United Nations designated December 11th as International Mountain Day. Their goal was to encourage the international community to organize annual events to highlight the importance of sustainable mountain development.

We’ve seen some impressive mountains on our trips to National Parks and Forests. Here are some of our favorites.

  1. I read this year that originally the Appalachian mountains were connected to the Scottish highlands. I’m still having trouble wrapping my head around that and do not know if it is true or not. They are not dramatic but beautiful in their diversity.

  2. Well, who knew there was such a day? I recall hiking between Waterton National Park in Alberta and Glacier National Park in Montana with Parks guides from Canada and the U.S.A. It was a great day and a great hike with a mock citizenship ceremony as we crossed the border into the U.S.. Always good to see cooperation across borders and amongst men. Thanks for sharing T. Hope all is well. Allan
