Tight-lipped Thursday

spring 09 044

Welcome to “Life and Random Thinking”

– the owner of which is having trouble remembering the day of the week it is!  Mea Culpa ♥

Instead of Wordless Wednesday, I found an alternate – Tight-lipped Thursday.

Thanks for dropping by – David ♥

Thanks to the encouragement of my family  I tackled Giant’s Head Mountain in Summerland twice recently, these pics are from the first climb.  Captions for you! 

Giant’s Head is named for it’s profile of a face when viewed from the southeast. The peak is the remnant of a shattered volcano and is about 500 metres above Okanagan lake.

    Did you touch the sky? It looks like you could.
    I am one of those freaks who LOVES uphill climbs 🙂 It always feels so good to get to the top.

      I appreciate your comment, and I think you are right. I suppose each of us is experiencing the world differently, from our individual point of view. It will be unique to us. I think that is one of the aspects of blogging I enjoy. Since it is international I get a peek into the worlds of people from all over, Canada, USA, Great Britain, India, Brazil, Australia and so on. It’s a privilege I appreciate and I think I am learning! ♥

    I am – very much – all about the textures in photos, so love love love the bark. The others are lovely too, but that’s my favourite. Congrats on the hike – great work!
