You get a perspective from the top of a mountain that you cannot get anywhere else. This huge panorama is on Pike's Peak in Colorado looking towards the east. You will have to click on the image to see the detail. I climbed my first "mountain" when I was about seven years old. I went up by myself and it changed my life by giving me a new perspective. To this day, I can remember standing on top of the hill and the effect on my life.
