Mountains are not Stadiums where I satisfy my ambition to achieve, they are the cathedrals where I practice my religion.

  1. I was going to suggest that this cathedral looks very much like the one where I’m usually found on Sundays…and as it turns out, it is…just down the road a bit. And by all of the comments above, seems that we’re in good company. πŸ˜‰

  2. I have read about Anatoli Boukreev and the unique accomplishment he performed by saving several climbers on Mount Everest. The woman who wrote about him was the danish climber Lene Gammelgaard. She climbed Mount Everest at the same time, and tells in her book, ‘Everest – vejen til toppen’ about Anatoli.
    All the best

    • Thank you for including a bit about Anatoli. I had heard of his deeds, but couldn’t remember the name. I very much like the sentiment in his quote. Thank you for visiting and commenting.

    • Having experienced both, I’d say each has its own charms. I tend to prefer the more moderate weather of our coast, but there’s some marvelous beauty in those amazing mountains.
