I Love Mountains And Forests

    I've been to beaches and plains... never deserts or tundras... but I still think I could not live where there were no mountains or forests. I grew up in Tennessee, surrounded by woods and mountains, and it's very comforting to me.

    I would love to be high up in the mountains in

    a small cabin overlooking the valley below covered in snow. Snuggled in a big comfy chair by the fireplace. I so miss taking trips there, it's been a while.

    I live in the Rockies.

    And let me just say I love my mountains. They are beautiful and they make me feel safe, like nothing can get to me. My family went on vacation to Florida about ten years ago and I was terrified I felt like something was going to swoop down and drag me to my doom. If anyone lives...

    I'm from Norway! We have mountains with

    blankets of spruce keeping them warm obscured from trolls eyes. The snows soften the crags and give the mountains an icing like a cake!

    Since Early Childhood

    The forest had always been my "happy place". I have always pictured tall conifers (Christmas trees). The type of trees that are so big around your arms don't even go half way around and their tops almost block out the sun. These trees are always on the slopes of mountains.I grew...

    Oh Those Mountains Are Wonderful

    I'm not sure if I've ever seen a forest in person, but I've had to do reports for school and thought that it would be a cool place to visit. I have been to the mountains though, and they sure are magnificent. It's so very peaceful out there in the mountains. Lovely scenery, much...

    My Spiritual Home

    I grew up in a city, with nothing but a few empty lots and a manicured park and a few playgrounds to play in. But my father loved the woods and as a small child he'd take me there and I immediately loved the smells and the quiet, and hated going back home. In scouts it all really...
