1. Why is Jessie so sad when she and her parents first arrive in the mountains?

Answer: Jessie is so sad when she and her parents first arrive in the mountains because her parents are constantly fighting and arguing with each other, and she is worried about their relationship. She also fears the intense physical challenge of the climbing expedition, and is aware of the deep financial strain the trip is putting on her family.
