You get to see the top and bottom of the mountain together. If you endure the journey, you’ll just sorta make eye contact and raise your eyebrows as if to say, "Want to go again?" And then you're halfway up the mountain for another adventure before you have too much time to question it, with an enormously heavy rucksack on your back, very glad to have someone by your side in case of avalanches or coyotes. What starts out being about love winds up being about survival. That’s romance.
