The motivations of mountaineers may be a mystery to those who do not climb high mountains, and climbers themselves typically struggle to explain the forces that call these men and women into thin air. Bellingham resident, climber and author David Mauro offers his own answers to this “why?” question through pictures, video, and readings from his recent release, The Altitude Journals, recounting the seven-year period during which he traveled to each continent, climbing its highest summit.
