There is a sense of profound reverence as you gaze out at the view, knowing that the only people to see it have climbed the very mountain you stand on. Your own goals will feel the same way – the fact that you have worked for them gives them deeper meaning, makes them worth the effort.

Atop Blackrock, I had the normal commanding view down two valleys (Paine Run and Madison Run), of Rocks Mountain to the south and Humpback and the Priest to the way south, and Rockytop and Big Flat to the north and the Central District to the way north.

Arising in the mid-19th century at a time of great political crisis, when feudal Japan was opening to the West, Tenrikyō began as a rural cult based around Nakayama Miki, a shamanic figure who delivered her divine revelations in automatic writing and was said to perform miracles of healing.

I think of a line from Russell Hoban’s Riddley Walker – ‘It wer like the 1st time I seen a woman open for me I wer thinking: This is what its all about then.’5 This is the core, this is the nub, one individual stripped back to calligraphic bones, one frail body as ideogram for all Mortality.

No one can wrestle for long with that reality; it surrounds us with countless lifetimes, a trillion generations wouldn’t begin to cover it. Within your own few decades you feel over time your life’s fabric stretching to its limit; your joints begin to tire at the continuous effort of being, as you physically prepare for your own reconvergence.mountainmountainmountain

The December 2006 stranding of three experienced climbers on Oregon’s Mount Hood during a spell of stormy winter weather, which has resulted in one confirmed death and the disappearance, so far, of the other two climbers, is a serious reminder that mountainous terrain is both beautiful and potentially dangerous. Of course, there are things about mountain bikes which aren’t ideal for urban use. There was only time for a short visit but how good to know it is there for next time, for free and open to all. The 4.5-mile Skyline Drive Trail meanders up and down mountain ridges and valleys.

But it was time to move on. Time to take those skills and go find real partners. Some houses need a mountain in front of them to improve the health and well-being of the occupants. On our way back, we trekked the West side of the boulders to see a different view, and it was nice since it was all clear and we can see the beautiful view of Davao City, Davao Gulf and some islands in it.

It passed mainly through forest, sometimes entering clusters of pines or mountain laurel. When I say the world stopped, I mean that I have a very strange relationship to time now. Finally we stood on the saddle which separates Fish Creek to the east and Agua Blanca creek to the west, with Cobblestone in our faces and the escape route up to White Mtn Ridge at our backs.mountainmountain

Historically, we have attributed these physical life changes to time itself taking a merely chronic toll; more lately in our new scientific version we blame it as well on our dwindling personal supply of telomeres, if you want to stick to that. Continuing past the wreckage, the trail made a final switchback in …

Since 1996 The Mountain Institute has worked in the world’s longest mountain range. Without Patrick, it took me a very long time to piece together some kind of identity, and even now, 13 years later, it feels false, because he hasn’t been here to see it. Mauna Loa (4,169 m or 13,678 ft) is the largest mountain on Earth in terms of base area (about 2,000 sq mi or 5,200 km2) and volume (about 18,000 cu mi or 75,000 km3).

There on the mountain top with only the birds and shy animals for company, I had the space and peace to deal with all sorts of issues that beset me on every side. Though the mountains here don’t see temperatures below zero, the fast changing mountain climate does pose a challenge.

Many times, people look at something they truly desire and allow themselves to be discouraged by the enormity of the mountain before them. On the right was Rocks Mountain and Calvary Rocks, now much closer than it had looked earlier in the day.

Mt. Pulag is one of the most beautiful and sought after mountain trekking spots in the Philippines. The pond that shows up on the topo at the Buck Creek/White Mountain junction was bone dry. The Institute’s education model that combines academic learning with community building was developed in our Appalachian program and has been exported to other mountain regions.

The headwaters of the various drainages like Fish Creek didn’t feature any nearby obvious springs called out on the topo maps either. Most prominent was the bulky mass of Trayfoot Mountain right across a low saddle. It is the second highest mountain peak in the world and is located in Pakistan.mountainmountain

His academic background is in geology with an emphasis on mountain building processes. Overlooking from the peak, you can get a good view of the entire Davao City in the northeast, Digos City in the southeast and Kidapawan City in the mini-plateau top of the mountain, about 500 meter wide has a small crater lake.

There was no view; the mountain was, however, very prettily wooded, with a line of small greenstone outcrops sticking out in the woods. At any given moment in your climb, you may look up at the rest of the mountain and tell yourself that it’s too much, that you can’t do it.

Come on in…take time to browse…and if the spirit moves you, leave a comment! A set of quartzite outcrops to the left of the trail provided a decent view into Paine Run Hollow. When rocks on one side of a fault rise relative to the other, it can form a mountain.mountain
