There was some discussion in yesterday’s Word Cloud about solitude and reflection. We are tied to our gadgets almost to the exclusion of the world around us. There are escapes. Since I live in the mountains, and my ancestors lived in the Scottish Highlands, I feel a connection with those huge piles of dirt and rock. Here are some mountains and adventure, but not for the faint of heart.
One could get away by hiking the ridge of Mount Lady Macdonald Canmore, in Alberta, Canada:
For those less inclined to take long hikes, how about riding a bike? Danny Macaskill goes home to the Scottish Isle of Skye to ride his bike on the Cuillin Ridgeline.
As for me, I prefer my mountain adventures while seated comfortably.
How do you like your adventures? What gets the juices flowing in your life?
