“The mountains are calling, and I must go…” John Muir – a naturalist who wrote these famous lines in a letter to his sister Sarah on 3rd Sep 1873. Even after one and a half century, this statement holds so true for us. Don’t you just feel the urge to go, explore and be one with the greens, the blues, the crimson, the mist, and the chill…of the mountains and valleys…
Romantically, the Mountains were calling John as they do to all of us. However, these excursions are not just about lazy summer holidays and camping and definitely not about some Mall-Road shopping.
It’s about a sight to behold for rest of our life, connecting with the nature in its purest form, feeling the rough rocky surface or just touching the soft white snow. The trees, the flowers, the animals on the mountains are all rugged and yet they speak emotions.
As a famous author right said, “Although I deeply love oceans, deserts and other wild landscapes, it is only mountains that beckon me with that sort of painful magnetic pull to walk deeper and deeper into their beauty. They keep me continuously wanting to know more, feel more, see more.”
