I Really Love the Mountains

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,118 People

    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...

    From a Flatlander

    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...

    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 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...

    Although I am not born here,

    but i really adore the mountains i can see from distance. When i had fights with parents and relatives, when my friends left, when i had a meaningless life, and no beloved girl ever, then came my fascination for mountains. I feel like at home, and I felt that it was the...

    My first experience was

    Tennessee

    Hiking With Friends

    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...

    Although I am having problems in relationship.

    I have an amazing view that soothes my soul. I can just disappear in the glory and majesty of the mountains. There's nothing better than sitting in silence and looking at the sleeping Giants.

    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.

    For most of my life, I enjoyed easy access to

    the Rocky Mountains. After graduating, I found work in a concrete jungle where nature is not appreciated or understood. I don't like the feeling that my dream to live in the mountains is a distant fantasy now. I know a mountain is more than escaping to a pampered ski resort...

    I remember the first time I saw the mountains-

    I love the views that you get

    when you're up in the mountains. I also like that it's basically free to just walk or hike on up and just be at peace and get a real whiff of fresh air.

    I live in a country that is mostly mountains.

    In the summer I spend a lot of time on Mynydd Du. It means Black mountain. But it isn't really black. The colour changes with the weather.

    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...

    I live by the sea. But I think I prefer the

    mountains. Difficult if you live in a totally mountainous country which is by the sea! Our mountains aren't high but because we live near the Arctic Circle any height means you go above the tree line.
