#Hiking the High Mountains (#Taiwan). 'Two thirds of Taiwan’s terrain is mountainous – and what mountains they are. Hundreds soar above 3000m, and well-established hiking routes run everywhere. Everyone wants to tackle Yushan, the highest peak in Northeast Asia, but the second highest, Snow Mountain, is a more scenic climb, and leads to the sublime Holy Ridge, a 5-day walk on an exposed ridgeline that never drops below 3000m.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/taiwan
Mt. Shasta under the clouds is a volcano located at the southern end of the Cascade Range in Siskiyou County, California. At 14,179 feet, it is the second highest peak in the Cascades and the fifth highest in California.
And I have felt a presence that disturbs me with the joy of elevated thoughts; a sense sublime of something far more deeply interfused, whose dwelling is the light of setting suns, and the round ocean and the living air, and blue sky and in the mind of man; a motion and a spirit that impels all thinking things, all objects of all thought, and rolls through all things. ~William Wordsworth☀️
