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.

How beautiful! I love the mountain scenery.

I grew up (and still live) in Devon. No mountains there, but hills and granite tors in all directions. I can't imagine living anywhere where it's flat!
I truly love the mountains, there is something so amazing and special about them. If Eru or the Goddess exists anywhere on earth, to me it would be in the mountains.

Tors are pretty kewl too, though.
