    I Love Both!

    I love the mountains!  In the summer everything is green, alive and full.  You can smell the earth, the flowers, the animals, the life all around you.  You can walk and walk and never see another person.  In the fall the leave start turning and falling and it...

    I live on the Oregon coast, so I got the ocean to side and mountains to the other and there's no other way I'd have it. I love the fresh air, the sound of the waves beating the coast and how green the land is. I love going to the mountains in the summer to camp, love hiking. I've...

    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!

    My favorite place growing up was my uncle's 150 acre farm. The majority of it was in the mountains, filled with woods, untouched fields, and creeks. It was home.

    The greatest risk is really to take no risk at all. You've got to go out there, jump off the cliff and take chances. (Picture included)
