Film still of Manhattan via Tout Le Cine

"I grew up a tomboy, skiing and hiking; so before there was yoga and Mountain pose, there were mountains. The beauty of the Sawtooth Range was a comforting gift to me. When I could drive—and country kids in Idaho drive at the age of fourteen—I would head off alone to places where the steep hills came right down near the road. I climbed dusty trails and boulder-filled avalanche chutes up to the high places. The cool mountain air was a blessed contrast to the overheated atmosphere of home. I would propel my body upward, making a mental pact with myself that if I could just get to the top of the ridge or peak, all the anxiety that consumed me would fall away. It usually worked, too." —Mariel Hemingway
