and the poet said to the mountaineer
don’t look at the peak
as a goal to be conquered
look at it instead
as a loved one to be adored
and it shall be yours
We spent a wonderful day at the Zion National Park, Utah.
I LOVE HIKING! I didn't know I would love mountains and rocks so much! Probably because I have never seen real ones?
I took a lot of pictures of mountains and rocks. I just stood and took pictures, then made a step, stopped and took a lot of pictures. Just like I took a picture of this rock.
This is how far down at the bottom of that mountain I was. I almost turned around and left, but stopped. With a corner of my eye I saw something moving on the mountain. I zoomed my camera...
Can you see? That blue dot in the middle? I was so intrigued and zoomed more...
Oh, my Gosh! Un-be-lie-vable!
From that little blue dot (please, click on the picture) that is hardly to be seen
to that critical position where a decision can cost life.
I wonder what does it take them to conquer heights? Probably, something I don't have, and I can blame on my fear of heights of course, but probably this challenge for me is something I will never overcome...
