Couldn't tell you just how much I love mountains.
The huffing and puffing when going the precipitous uphills, the endless winding routes, the roots, bogs, rocks, and above all, the views from the mountain top.
For most, perhaps it is pointless to spend more than a month hiking the Ohenro around the Shikoku island, not to mention another 5-6 months hiking a trail from Mexico to Canada.
But I do enjoy it. Being alone in the wilderness, hiking under the sun and the rain, even through the snow.
