my mountain

i began this year by promising myself i would climb a mountain. i dont wish to climb a metaphorical one but a real, sharp, pointy, cold, snowy, awe inspiring mountain. i think this, although not technically a mountain is possibly my favoured location.

it is the Preikestolen in Norway. it is a massive cliff, 604 metres above lysefjorden with a perfectly square and almost flat plateau. there is a 2.4 mile hike to reach the top, encountering some very steep bits en route.

it overwhelms me.
