There’s is something extraterrestrial in mountains🏔. The big giants that dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures used to walk on just like we walk on the street. Some time ago, millions of years ago, an unimaginable force of nature and persistence have pushed these parts of surface 🆙 to form mountains. Suddenly, these unremarkable parts of earth have become the most majestic, challenging and exciting parts of the world unreachable by majority of creatures that live on earth today. Today, thousands of people are fascinated, yet terrified by them. Many people devote their lives to conquering the most majestic mountains in the world - some come back a changed man, some yearn for more, and some just never come back.
What fascinates me about mountains is that it’s a constant reminder of our own insignificance in this world. As someone with a good chunk of ego, I try to constantly remind myself that there are things that are so bigger than us, bigger than all of us.
