On spotting mountains and climbing them

A really reflective poem by P. Alford reminds us that traveling, like many other things, isn’t only for the very rich or a select few. You can do almost anything if you put your mind to it. Limitations are self-created, self-preserved!

Climb the highest mountain,
Swim the deepest sea,
Always aim to be,
The best that you can be,
Love with all your heart,
Laugh with all your soul,
Enjoying every day you live,
Should be your daily goal,
Remember you are special,
Unique in every way,
Let no one on this earth,
Stand in your way.

Here’s an article I drifted onto the other day. It’s on 10 Spectacular Volcanic Plugs & Natural Monoliths. My hope is to ascend El Peñón de Guatapé in Colombia one day!
