IMO....a man hasn't lived UNTIL he's sat on top of a mountain and observed the GLORY THAT GOD HATH MADE before his eyes!!

AMEN, Sir!!! I used to ROCK CLIMB, and at my dad's and my last guided elk hunt the guide told me that he wanted me "right there on the edge of that rock outcropping, pointing at it at a distance of about 800 yards. Not necessarily being afraid of falling, I walked around the back edge of the hill, coming in on the backside. Then I started "butt-sliding" up to the edge with my boot heels on the edge of the clift, and leaned against a scrub. I loved it. I was at so much PEACE, with that wind coming up the valley, looking at all the Evergreens, just eating my lunch and keeping my rifle handy. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
About three hours later, my guide sneeked up on me only to tell me "Good Lord, man are you nuts?!?" [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] I told him that he did say he wanted me on the edge. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Lord willing I will make it back within the next year or two......I need some serious destressing! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
