A Word a Week: Mountain (2)

I love mountains as serene places where I can seek solitude and strength.

Up in the mountains of Yunnan, China, I found not only solitude and strength, but also beautiful mountain views.

I felt totally relaxed at the sight of distant blue mountains partially covered by the clouds and  as a contrast, in the foreground, are green mountains. Clear and calcium rich fresh water came dripping down from the dams of travertine into the lake below where three Yaks were staying.DSC_0300

To take this picture, I went quite close to the Yaks. The image is made more interesting by the multi-colors on the saddles of the Yaks which are the colors of the local tribes.

Gazing at the scenery in front of us, we know our long journey to several thousand metres high up the hills was a worthwhile trip. . . . . . . . . . .
