Peaks Around the World
This week’s #Frifotos theme is “peaks” — and I had quite a few from which to choose!
I love mountains. I was never really much of a mountain girl until I started traveling — then I fell in love with them. They give me a level of peace that I’ve struggled to find elsewhere in nature.
I’m off to explore more mountains next week — the Alps, once again, but in France for the first time. I’ll be in Grenoble and Lyon, the heart of the Rhone-Alpes region. But for now, enjoy these pictures of peaks that I’ve enjoyed around the world.
One of my favorite mountainous experiences — paragliding through the Alps in Interlaken, Switzerland.
Table Mountain in Cape Town, South Africa, doesn’t have a traditional peak — it’s flat on top — but it’s a spellbinding mountain all the same.
I loved this little village halfway up a mountain in Liechtenstein. It gets the last sun of the day in the tiny principality.
I wasn’t expecting the area around Petra, Jordan, to be so mountainous — or so dramatic.
Climbing up Mount Snowdon, the tallest mountain in Wales, was one of my bigger physical achievements of last year. Which was dashed to the ground when I saw how many ridiculously fit people RAN up and down the mountain!
I was surprised by the beautiful mountainous scenery in central Croatia on the way to the Plitvice Lakes. A very calm, rural beauty.
And now for something different — the mountains outside Pai, Thailand. The perfect place to ride a motorbike.
And, as always, a shot of the Alps and Innsbruck below. Climbing this mountain was absolutely insane.
