Majestic Mountains

Although I prefer the ocean, I enjoy being in the mountains, too.  Mountains show us the grandeur and timelessness of the earth.

This photograph is of Olympic Mountains from Hurricane Ridge in the Olympic National Park, where I visited several years ago. You can see the backbone ridges that ran from where I stood out to the peaks, still snow-covered in mid-August. Sun glinted off the glaciers, turning them into sugar-dusted confectioner’s treats.

The world seemed large and small, near and far, old and new, familiar and foreign, all at once. The mountains were magnificent.

Do you prefer ocean or mountains?
