I love the mountains, this is not a secret to anyone who knows me. Hiking clears my head like nothing else. There is something so majestic and humbling about the mountains. You have a respect for nature and yet a feeling that you are a small part of something much bigger which humbles you in a comforting way.
National Geographic posted a gallery to some amazing mountain themed photographs. I thought this was worth sharing.
Inspired by this slideshow, I've decided to post a panoramic that I took with my cell phone on a hike at Hawk Mountain last fall. Enjoy!
