highest point in LA
I was at the Verizon store, the clerk asked for my address so I told him
Burnt Mountain Road
His eyes lit up with surprise and excitement - you live on a mountain? on top of a mountain? on the side of a mountain?
Wow that's awesome
Yep not many mountains 'round here
No I haven't seen any… ever
You have never seen a mountain?
No, I have never been out of
Wow you need to get out more
Back at the camper, just curious, I wonder how far one would have to go to find a mountain, I know there are mountains in
Arkansas, the state just north of here. But
wait, Louisiana has a mountain, ,
highest point in the state at 535 feet. Mount Driskill
Pshaw 535 feet? That's no mountain. But it is all relative I suppose, when the elevation where Buddy is building is about 25 feet. Above sea level.
No, we are not going to make this trek up to
a Google search will suffice. We sometimes climb mountains on our travels, like
the famed Mount Driskill Harney Peak hike where the change in
elevation made this old lady a tad dizzy… but it topped out at 7244 feet. Above
So just thankful to have lived so much of my life in the mountains, we take them for granted sometimes, we fret when we cannot drive up them in inclement weather or through them in the clouds.
But there is nothing better than looking out at the view from a mountain or looking up at the mountains from below.
One's mood changes with rise in elevation, changes for the better.
