I Really Love the Mountains

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,349 People

    I LOVE it to hike in the mountains,

    to smell the fresh, clear air as much higher I am going up and when I am on the top of the mountains I am so closed to the sky, nobody, who can trouble me - just peace and silence. And to look down from the hilltop how small everything looks like and having a beautiful view.

    I'd love to see the Rockies again.

    I've always wanted to see the Himalayas, minus that whole freezing my *** off in the snow thing.

    I live in a mountainous country.

    They seem eternal. They have always been there. Yet they change from season to season and they change from hour to hour. In the winter the bracken has turned brown and the mountains look bleak for months. With the summer we see the green again but the most wonderful time is...

    I spent this week in Yellowstone National Park

    taking in the geysers, hot springs, wilderness, and vast mountains. Under Yellowstone sits a super volcano that has the potential to wipe out North America - amazing yet terrifying!

    Could sit and stare for hours at

    such wonderful works of art. Amazing they truly are. Sorry but I am in no way interesting in climbing not a one. From the bottom and off from a distant. They'll hold you hostage for hours. Especially the ones with snow on them.

    I miss living in the Colorado Rockies.

    I grew up for many years in Clear Creek County, Colorado. This was before the casinos, when all you had to deal with was the ski traffic or the campers. I return as often as I can to see how the place keeps changing. Not much of a little mountain community anymore up there...

    I live in a country which is full of mountains.

    I love walking there in the summer. And even in the winter they are beautiful. It is still dark for most of the day. I am looking forward to the days lengthening and eventually it will be light enough to visit the mountains again.

    mountains are so nice BC

    when the weather changes seasons you get to set back and enjoy the season change. where you have some states that stay the same all the time. Don't get me wrong I love the beach and can live there too but I love the change of the seasons and they make great pictures

    I live in a mountainous country.

    Not like the Alps or the Himalaya. But some quite craggy mountains. I love walking in the mountains. I go any time of year. The colours are so different. The rock is always grey. It's limestone. But we go from green in the summer to purple in the summer and now browns and reds.

    Where I live there are quite high mountains.

    I live on a farm. It is 140 metres up on the hillside. The top of the hill is 190 metres. And then you just look out over hills and mountains that go up to nearly 1000 metres. It ain't like the Himalaya I know. But high enough to have snow on the top,

    Driving atop small mountains is adventurous.

    Here we have something called Nandi - Hills about a 3000 ft high. But the road to the top is good and cool breezes.
