I live in a small town with big surroundings, also known as mountains. Tons of mountains. I’ve lived here practically my whole life, and 15 years after moving to the Carolina’s, I’m just now appreciating the beauty that surrounds me. You get a whole new perspective on the world that surrounds you when you look from different angles. The higher the elevation, the higher you feel on life.

Hiking is one of the best pass times when you live near mountains. There are beautiful places all around you and it’s an amazing feeling to be able to search and discover them on your own.

There are so many different ways you can feel towards climbing mountains. Strong, beautiful, on top of the world, brave, free, incredible, terrified, etc.

The feeling of freedom and strength is the most rewarding feeling, and if you can find these feelings while doing something so exciting such as adventuring through the mountains, that’s all that matters in that moment and time.

Climb mountains not so the world can see you, but so you can see the world.
