In Colorado we love our mountains; it’s a source of state pride, offering uncountable breathtaking vistas and recreational opportunities as well as so much more. “The Mountain Pavilion” was just one of the many pavilions that CEC attended at the Rio+20 Conference on sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil this past week. Outside the pavilion several signs touted what we know to be oh so true in Colorado:
- Mountains balance our climate and our lives
- Mountains connect us all
- Mountains are our water sources and reservoirs
- Mountains are our future heritage
- Mountains are home of glaciers and people
Mountains are all of this and so much more! For me mountains provide rejuvenation, solace and a connection to something bigger. Why do mountains matter to you?
