Travel Theme: Mountains

Perfect timing!!! Just recently, I went up to West 35 for a business travel. I took few photos of the place, it was beautiful. I should have taken more, but I didn’t bring with me my camera. Lucky enough phone has 50% battery; I was able to capture photos of the mountain and the sun. Stayed there for 2 nights, it was cold and cozy. It was a very nice place to relax and reflect.

You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know. – Rene Daumal
