The article presents a grand prize winning essay in the New York Department of Environmental Conservation's Great Stories from the Great Outdoors contest. The author talks about her feelings as she hikes trails like Cascade, Owl's Head and Baxter in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. She describes the many faces of a summit as the picture of hospitality with flawless sky, a view of a thunderstorm moving across a valley and at times cloudy and rainy like a silver curtain drawn over the vista.
