Mountain Climbing



I wanted to show you a photo of the small mountain that I climbed recently.
This is Pearis mountain and it can be seen from my house.
(But that is not my house in the picture!)
I love to watch the seasons change on this mountain.
This photo was obviously taken in early Spring because the mountain isn't green yet.
When I climbed it, it was yellow with the last of the Fall leaves.
The famous Appalachian trail runs over Pearis mountain so now I can say that I have hiked on the Appalachian Trail.
It's fun to imagine hiking the whole trail someday.
But that's likely to remain an imagination!
I didn't gain any real spiritual insight from this hike but I did gain a practical one:
DON'T go mountain climbing shortly after recovering from the flu or you're likely to have a relapse!
:>
Have a great day everyone!

Hey Holly,
You are so blessed to live near the mountains and to have this mountain view. I always say that I left a piece of my heart in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennesee. (We vacationed there in 2006) I loved it there... in those mountains. I bet your hike was beautiful...Getting out in nature is always wonderful...there's no other place I'd rather be.

P.S. Something went wrong on my first comment, so if you get two comments from me.... sounding the same...it's because I couldn't remember what I wrote word for word the first time. LOL!
