By Dolores LaChapelle

LaChapelle was an avid mountain climber and skier, but first and foremost she was a philosopher and researcher. She shared much common ground with Arne Naess. In this text from 1992 LaChapelle shares memories of their correspondence and her encounters with Arne. She also tells of the introduction of the deep ecology movement principles in the United States, at the time of the Earth Day X Colloquium in 1980.
