When the earth speaks to you, what do you hear? Scattered with the footprints of lives once lived, the colossal landscape of the Grand Canyon provides a remarkable backdrop for the search for perspective. For thousands of years, in the harshest of conditions and often against all odds, the Grand Canyon has provided a vast canvas where individuals, communities, plants and animals have connected with the earth and shaped their existence. Follow our 2021 Reach Your Peak winner, Erikka Olsen, as she takes on her dream of climbing Mount Hayden in the Grand Canyon, and shares what voices from the past can teach us about our present selves.
