    I Share A Special Bond

    I absolutely love my mountains, there is almost nothing as beautiful or spectacular as walking or hiking within them, seeing how grand and glorious they are, the light shinning on them the fresh air that surrounds them, climbing to the very top, struggling to get up their until...

    ...Purple Mountains Majesties...

    I've long loved the mountains. While some are agape over the beauty of the ocean, I long to live somewhere where I can look right outside my window and see a big mountain peak in the distance. I would love to live in Colorado, for that reason. Even though the Adirondacks are...

    Orgiva, Andalucia and the Alpujarra Mountains

    The most amazing place I have been to with great mountain views is Orgiva, Andalucia. You are by the Sierra Nevada national park and the alpujarra mountains are just stunning. I had never been anywhere so surrounded by mountains before and it blew my mind. It was such a relaxing...

    I remember the first time I saw mountains. I was seven years old, and up to that point had lived (mostly) in the Great Plains.  Dad had a job interview in Colorado, so off we went, driving from near Omaha.From the moment I saw the mirage-ish outlines of the Rockies I was in...

    Appalachians!

    I love my mountains.  We are a well kept secret.  People think this area is just uneducated hillbillies.  I guess we let them think that so we don't get overcrowded!

    I live in a country that is mostly mountains.

    They ain't high like the Alps but they're so beautiful. I love walking in the mountains. In the summer they're covered in heather and they turn purple. My favourite place is by a little waterfall on the Black Mountain. We paddle in the stream and listen to the water. Plus there...

    Being a flatlander I just can't get over seeing mountains, big ones, small one, and even a little hill is good now and then.  Looking up at a snow covered mountain, give me a sense of amazement.  Thinking of the power that was needed to create them and also knowing in a...

    Best Of Both Worlds

    My husband & I left smoggy, crowded Los Angeles in 1980 to the fresh, crisp air of the mountains. Our family thought we were crazy, but from the first time we met, we both said we wanted to leave the city. Now I know, mountain living is not for everyone. There is a saying we have...

    A Place Of Escape.

    Although my work confines me to the indoors I've always been an outdoors-man. Given the slightest opportunity you'll find me somewhere out there in nature enjoying what it has to offer. I am no "nature snob" so anything will do, no matter if it is a rainforest, the African...

    I love how quiet the mountains are.

    You can hear the silence. I go there on my own sometimes. The only sound is the stream. It's my favourite place in the world. The stream plunges down a ravine. There's a mountain ash growing in the rock. I'm 14 now and the tree is the same size I've always remembered it. It ain...

    I hiked all morning with two friends to a beautiful summit at approximately 9000 feet. The view from the top was spectacular, with green mountains all around us, and a distant view of the valley where we live.  We talked about life, people, politics, culture.  We also talked...

    I go on road trips every year,

    and my favourite place to go, is the mountains. I just love cruising through the heart of the Canadian Rockies. The roads are fun to drive on, the traffic is usually pretty light, (if I go at the right time that is). And the scenery that surrounds them is the icing on the cake...

    Sometimes

    Usually I hate the whole outdoors idea, its ******* nasty. But occasionally I like the idea of being stuck in the mountains enjoying the view without cell phone reception and any of the problems in your life reaching you.

    Awesome!

    What an awesome sight!  I'm near the rocky mountains and when I'm there I feel like I'm a million miles away.  So majestic yet calming.  They really are "out of this world" and have to be experienced to be appreciated.
