in the Mountains

The sun sets behind the mountains early, leaving us with the cozy fireplace, the record player and candlelight in the cabin. There's nothing to miss about the City when you live with this beauty outside your windows every day 💜

"Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity"

John Muir

A mountain sunset is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen.

"The greatest gift of life on the mountain is time. Time to think or not think, read or not read, scribble or not scribble -- to sleep and cook and walk in the woods, to sit and stare at the shapes of the hills. I produce nothing but words; I consumer nothing but food, a little propane, a little firewood. By being utterly useless in the calculations of the culture at large I become useful, at last, to myself." —Philip Connors

All of these colours in the sky happened in one Winter sunset.

"And if these mountains had eyes, they would wake to find two strangers in their fences, standing in admiration as a breathing red pours its tinge upon earth's shore. These mountains, which have seen untold sunrises, long to thunder praise but stand reverent, silent so that man's weak praise should be given God's attention." —Donald Miller
