Climbing along the ridge of the mountain I tried to keep my footing; the slope was sleep and the footing precarious as moist grass and moss combined with loose gravel making the journey dangerous. My heart was filled with sheer joy and exhilaration. For a brief wonderful moment, adulthood caution was cast aside, giving way to the innocence of childhood joy wonder and adventure. I stopped momentarily and surveyed the majestic scene before my very eyes.White pure light diffused by the clouds cast its heavenly glow everywhere. The slope beneath me was very steep and disappeared into the clouds. Despite its beauty and magnificence this mountain could be potentially treacherous to the unsuspecting traveller. Surrounded by clouds on every side, stretching out in all directions towards the majestic Alps, the experience was truly overwhelming. I pause for a long while lost in thought and in total peace; I wanted to embed this beautiful moment within my heart for all time.
