    Mount Etna

    When I lived in Italy I enjoy a beautiful villa on the side of Mount Etna, I used to see her as I relaxed with snow around her and enjoyed her gorgeous view on one side and the ocean on the other side.   Life could get no better back then Sometimes I wish I stilled lived there...

    It has been far too long

    since I have seen them. I think typically when people think of 'holiday' (/vacation) they think of beaches. But for me it was mostly mountains. There is something special about them...to me, spiritual. Interesting. Intriguing. And the waterfalls from them, forests and where the...

    Mountains are really cool,

    I like them. They're really amazing and their structure is so unique. I think volcanoes are also amazing :)

    Maybe it's weird, but I really like the way

    they make me feel small, insignificant, ephemeral. Maybe it's knowing that nature endures and that they will be here for my kids long after I'm gone. I take strange comfort in that.

    I live by the mountains in Wales.

    I love walking there but it's really cold right now. I go up if the weathers clear but you can lose your way when the cloud is low.

    How About The Snow?

    I am not sure if anybody else does this but have you noticed the smell of snow. Just before a snow fall or waking up on a snowy day or just driving up above the snow line in winter there is a distinct smell. I can not describe it but it just makes me smile and feel very happy...

    Summer And Autumn.

    The mountains are a suitable place to go and commune with the ancient gods of our lands. Belisama and her mate live in the mountains around Mount Canigou, the holy mountain. You should return to the mountains every time you are able, and speak with the gods in your thoughts and...

    Most of my life I have lived places

    that have been relatively flat. We recently moved for a job. It is such a delight to see mountains as I drive to work and then again when I drive home. They are not always visible, so it's like playing 'peek-a-boo'. It's almost like they are hiding. I have such a big smile...

    There´s nothing better

    than to pack your backpack and to hike in the mountains. To smell the clear, fresh air, to feel the peace and the harmony and to enjoy the view, when you´ve arrived the top of the mountains.

    I Love The Mountains!

    Over the years I have traveled to the four main mountain chains in the continental U.S. and Canada. The Sierra Nevadas, Rockies, Ozarks, and Appalachians all have strong appeal for me to visit again. Their forests, rivers, and streams provide great beauty and enjoyable recreation...
