From a distance – all these mountain peaks look the same. Steep, craggy and covered in snow. They are also similar in so far as each one represents a potential high point in my week.
As I approach and make my way across the mountain range, I discover the ascents and descents are very different. Some slope more gently than others, some are sunnier, some are gloomier, some have firm footing – on others I’m more prone to the odd slip.
Certainty and uncertainty, faster pace and slower pace. Going gently enough to be sure I can appreciate the view whilst briefly at each summit. Taking care of myself so as to give my best when needed.
I hope your mountaineering is going fantastically well this week.
