A husband and wife, Fitz and Becca, follow their dream of traversing the high Sierra, climbing peaks, new and classic, napping on granite and sleeping in flowered meadows. The first week, a phantom cell phone rings in Fitz’s pocket, and he wonders if he can truly leave the city behind. Each day, they strive a little further, add the “okays” up to one triumphant “yes.” Eventually he declares his “mind has never been lighter.” By the end, Becca asks, “Can the mountains really cure a person? Bring two people closer together?”

Better husbands and wives? Or do they just provide a momentary respite amidst our otherwise chaotic and concrete-born lives? Check out their website here.
