I have stepped to the edge and looked down. I have felt the air pushing me both directions as I stood in the vortex of buffeting currents. I have closed my eyes and the beauty of the day was still so firmly emblazoned on my mind that I gasped with joy. I have.
I will climb more mountains and marvel at the rolling peak lines stretching away from the folds in the earth. I will raise my arms at my sides to feel the pressure wrought winds crashing up and down the majestic valleys. I will keep my eyes wide to catalogue every detail I can for the moments when I am far away and longing to return. I will.
I am aware of how many camping and backpacking photographs I have posted this month. I am sure that many of you have grown tired of them and hoped my choices would be a bit more diverse. I am being truthful when I say it was not my intention to have the majority of this month’s blogs be pictures from my beloved mountain adventures. But, sorry I am not.
