Planet Earth - Mountains
Maybe I expected too much. Can I be awed and inspired twice in a row? Apparently not.
Mountains just don't do it for me.
What is it about these massive, uninviting rocks people get so crazy about? Yes, they are ascetically pleasing. And they avalanche (I asked Chris "What do you like about the mountains?" and he says, "I like the avalanches." So avalanches it is). I just don't get it. Before going last night, Chris thought about saying something- but instead let me go into the CU Planetarium giddy with excitement. Only to leave thinking "What was that?" Sigh. At least I got to see these cuties:
Oops- I mean these cuties:
And I have Shallow Seas to look forward to in April. Hurray!
