The mountains have been a part of my life for most of my existence and, since I yearned to live in the mountains even before I ever saw one, I am certain they were part of me even before this lifetime. The mountains represent life itself to me…the high peaks to be climb and the luscious valleys in which to rest and replenish. There is nothing more exhilarating than breathing in the fresh mountain air. I can look at the same mountain everyday a hundred times and always see something new. Life is a mountain….not a beach.
