Landscapes have a language of their own, expressing the soul of things, lofty or humble, which constitute them, from the mighty peaks to the smallest of the tiny flowers hidden in the meadow’s grass.

Alexandra David-Néel

“Herzog writes of the mountains with affection and passion. They are to him, as they have become for me, sources of wonder, of life-enhancing moments, when borders between living and dying seem to overlap, when the past and the future cease to exist and you are free”

Joe Simpson

As everyone, I am certain, who feels this love and fascination and deep connection with the mountains and who has tasted their magic to some degree, myself, in my heart, spirit and soul, and for my experience, I know the unique power they hold and these words – life enhancing & source of wonder – to be absolutely true.
