"In the mountains or plains, with the pine in the air,
I’ll awake to the sun with a chill to compare.
When I hike up a hill, with a heart full of gloom,
And the trail is lined by the flowers in bloom,
There is seen all of life in the contrast of sight:
On the mountains so tall and the beauty so right."
~ Rocky Mountain Pines, Blake Elliot
A day to recognize the importance of mountains as habitat for wildlife and peoples of the earth, for their geographical influence on history and culture, and as inspirations and sources of wonder since ancient times. This tartan was inspired by the designer’s life in the Canadian Rockies and his indigenous heritage. The name “Spirit of the Mountains” was chosen to honour the sacredness of mountains to indigenous peoples and to acknowledge all who recognize and experience the alluring call of the mountains. Grey represents the stone that rises from the earth to form mountains; light blue is for glacial ice; dark green is for the hardy pines, spruces and firs that grow at high elevations; white for snow-capped peaks; blue for the sky; and purple is for the wild thistle that grows in the mountain landscapes and to honour the connection to the designer’s heritage in the highlands of Scotland. 🌲 🌊 💜
