Mountain views have a way of getting to you. They seem to entrance you with all their unpredictable dips and curves. I get the feeling I can almost fly when I look down into the valley! That is what I am going to miss most about this place-the mountains.
"You've got to treat the mountains like a high-spirited horse; never take it for granted."
-The man from Snowy River
The view of these mountains is something you are not going to find anywhere else. They are so beautifully unique in many ways!
Lots of people would look upon these mountains and just see a bunch of blue-green hills-no beauty at all! However, when I look upon them, I see how the mountains on the horizon look a little hazy and blue in the hot February sun, I see how the hills dip, curve and rise up into spectacular mounds of rock and red dirt, dotted with gum trees! On rainy days, you can not see the mountains at all for they are often covered in a blanket of mist and fog, then all of the sudden, a gust of wind pulls back the blanket and the mountains turn grey and look gloomy and sullen in the rain.
When we first moved here, a mountain view was something very new and different to me. Each time we would drive into town and pass these mountains I would drink in every detail and enjoy it. I love these mountains. I am going to miss them a lot.
