Happy New Year for 2013, dear friends, I am back from the mountains and ready to rock! I may sound very dynamic right now, but the truth is that it is difficult to come back to Earth (literally) and get re-adjusted to the pace of "normal" life. On the top of the mountains, there is a different vibe. Time does not exist. Nor do deadlines. It's just you face to face with your freedom.
It took us a 7 hours drive to get from our home town to the base of the mountain. And we climbed on foot for 4 hours, more than 1,000 m altitude (from 700 m high to 1720 m, where Cabana Malaiesti is). At times, my feet would move automatically, on a little strip of icy snow, but it was all worth it. The sun had been shining every day, bathing the peaks in a blinding light.
You could see other mountain peaks in the distance and they all looked like the waves of a beautiful sea. But this is a sea of beauty in the clouds, close to forever. I am the kind of girl who puts on her mountain boots to celebrate New Year's Eve, which reminds me to guide you to my post last year (different mountain, 8 hours drive from home, 1858 m altitude).
Texture one: the blinding sun.
Texture two: the purest snow for you.
Texture three: the mountain rocks and me.
Texture four: a spring runs for more.
Texture five: a woolly dog digs my vibe.
