Happy International Mountain Day
I think that this will be a day that I truly celebrate each year. I have always loved mountains. For me, oceans and cities have nothing on the mountains and I have been truly blessed to be living smack-dab in the middle of the Blue Ridge Mountains for the last almost 7 months. I have mentioned several times on here that the most spiritual I ever feel is when I’m spending time in mountains. I wrote a post about the Blue Ridge Parkway and how when I’m looking down at mountains, or standing on the top of a mountain, that I’m always reminded of a line in the Bon Iver song Holocene:
“And at once I knew I was not magnificent.”
Being in the mountains is such a humbling experience for me, and I want to never ever forget the feeling I get looking out across peaks and remembering how small I am, and how great, big and beautiful this world is.
Celebrating International Mountain Day today
Today, I spent the cold, bitter morning sitting at a hotel that overlooks my precious mountains, and I was almost moved to tears being, filled with love for all the amazing experiences these mountains (and others) have given me. So, I thought I would share some of my favorite mountain moments.

“My father considered a walk among the mountains as the equivalent of churchgoing.”
