What is it about mountains that inspire us?
Mountains can impress us in different ways. They can define borders, be seen as obstacles, move us to overcome. The mountain-that ancient symbol of strength, of what separates us from our goals, can also inspire us with grandeur and dreams. For what is a mountain, but the Earth’s growing pains?
Mountains have inspired travelers, artists, musicians, and those who actually live (or lived) on them. A man’s home may be his castle, but a mountain can be his fortress.
