Homesick for Mountains

I'm homesick for mountains today. I moved to Minnesota in the late 1970's and it is a beautiful state. We have lots of lakes, wonderful trees, very green colors, mosquitoes that could probably carry off a cow, and many birds that I adore watching. But the land is flat. Long ago it was covered by a very large glacier that squashed out the high relief. So we have river bluffs, but we don't have mountains. But I was raised in Colorado and spent my summers in the middle of the high mountains. I miss them today. So I am sharing mountain pictures from around the world with all of you today. Just pics - share the beauty.

I miss them a lot. I grew up in the mountains, and there is just something about the strength of those peaks and the people who managed to cross them that always appeals to me.
