Answering the “why” questions is tough. Why is a blurred grey in a world of black-and-white answers. There's always a deeper answer, another level to uncover when we start asking why to the people around us.
Its this characteristic of why that makes it so incredibly important and beautiful - a characteristic I'm reminded of every time I travel into the backcountry. This isn’t to say adventure in the outdoors prompts me to I ignore the “how” questions, but rather I am able embrace the reality that the “hows” and “whys” of our lives are much more connected than we may realize.
