A Tribute to

LIZ DALEY

Yesterday, I lost another friend to the mountains. Liz was special. So alive, so extremely alive. Professional snowboarder, AMGA certified mountain guide, friend to everyone and total goofball. We wonder why the mountains take from us the most cherished, the most loved, the most heroic. But the mountains do not take, they do not give, they just are. Some of the strongest among us test ourselves in the mountains, knowing that the opponent had limitless power and resources. In these tests we find the ultimate freedom, or the ultimate sacrifice. Some people take on these challenges with anger or fear. Liz did it with an overwhelming and infectious joy. She will be dearly missed.

Goodbye, Liz. You will be remembered dearly. #livelikeliz
