    Every year, as soon as the snow disappears off

    the low hills, I head up into the mountains. The air is incredibally clear and clean when you get above 6,000 feet. All of the noises of town are gone, replaced by the quiet that you can almost feel. You can keep the cities. I'll take the mountains every time.

    I Am

    There is a warm valley below. A dusty trail connects me. It binds and sustains. Goodbye mother. Goodbye friends. I will climb alone from here. I must see and breathe for myself. Towards life and death. Where the view expands forever.

    Since I was a young girl,

    my dream was to live in the mountains. I do just that now. Life can be challenging living deep in the mountains and woods. Our driveway alone is almost a mile long. It takes us 10 minutes to travel it. It's a dirt road that has been cut through the mountain side. Some places are...

    When I lived in Washington State, it was a wonderful two years. Never had I seen mountains so awe inspiring. I'll never forget driving to Walla Walla in two feet of driving snow and looking out the car window and down. The cabins and houses where there were any were tiny specks...

    The Mountains Call Me

    I don't know why, but the Mountains seem to call me back to them. Although I grew up in the foothills of the Appalachian mountain chain, its the heart of the Appalachians that seem to be my emotional home. There is an old Girl Scout song "Peace" that has a line that has always...

    The Mountains!!!!!!

    I absolutely adore the mountains here in Colorado. I can be having the worst day and feeling so stressed out. Then I can step out my door and enjoy the view of the mountains for a few minutes and feel so much better. I hate having to move away from here in a couple months.

    So a few weeks ago my dad

    and I went camping in the mountains of West Virginia and it was so beautiful. We pitched a tent and lit a fire and cooked and woke up to the most beautiful fog in the world. People make jokes about West Virginia but I loved it! I want to go again when it's warm. :D
