    It was posted and shared by random people whom I don't know so I cannot attribute it to any one person, unfortunately.

    It has the Bishop Climbers Coalition logo on it, but it's not on their FB page:

    However, it was on their Instagram page:

    Is this trip necessary?

    I wasn't alive then, but my understanding is that during WWII, the phrase "Is this trip necessary" became common.

    Then, it was about conserving gasoline which was needed for the war effort. I wonder if now is an appropriate time to re-purpose the phrase.

    Never loved your plains, your gentle valleys/Your drowsy country lanes and pleached alleys.
    I want my hills, the trail that scorns the hollow/Up, up the ragged shale where few will follow.

    High on my hills of dream, dear hills that know me/And then how fair will seem the lands below me
    How pure at vesper time, the far bells chiming/God, give me strength to climb, and hills for climbing. "Hills" - Arthur Guiterman
