Adventure Journal profiled the Yancey family this week, calling Mark and Sarah "the most awesome parents in the history of parenting."

"Obviously they don't know us that well," quipped Mark after reading the headline.

Those of us who have spent time with the Yanceys at the Boulder Hut know that they are a special family.

"I choose to live in the mountains because of the way it makes me feel," says Sarah. "I'm at home and at peace here."

The environment that Grace and Alden are growing up in brings peace, and as Mark says, "the humility that the mountains bring you."
