Lessons from the Back-country: Illusion of Safety

Danger is an innate part of any backcountry endeavor. I am often asked, "Is it worth the risk? Are you scared? Isn't it too dangerous?" To those who ask that, I like to answer their question with a different question that I came across that really impacted me:


Is danger the acknowledgment of risk or the illusion of safety?


Danger is constantly around us, no matter how "safe" we think we are. Every decision we make is fraught with risk and uncertainty. So what do we do?


Push harder! Challenge yourself! Being safe keeps you in the same place - stepping into risk brings progress.
