"Mountains are only contingencies of geology. Any emotional properties which they possess are vested in them by human imaginations.
Mountains, like deserts, polar tundra, deep oceans, jungles and all other wild landscapes we have romanticized into being - are simply there, and there they remain, their physical structures rearranged gradually over time by the forces of geology and weather, but continuing to exist over and beyond human perceptions of them." - Robert Macfarlane, Mountains of the Mind
Currently re-reading one of my favorite books and reflecting on the part of Antarctica I found the most mesmerizing - the mountains ❤️
A few weeks ago we purchased and move into our forever home. Our stuff has been in storage for a long time. How exciting to pull this little gem out of a box and sit it on our stone mantle piece. Bought over 20 years ago at a market in Melbourne, it fits in perfectly with our alpine lodge theme. #alpinelife#jindabyne#snowymountainscandleco#snowymountainsnsw#alpinelodge
See if you can spot the patches of "watermelon 🍉 snow" in the icy terrain throughout this scene. "Watermelon snow", or "pink snow", is actually a green algae that contains red pigment and thrives is extreme colds like the snowy alpine slopes and fields of the high sierra.🏔️🌲
🍀 Happy Saint Patrick's Day!
