In scanning the internet this week, I came upon a couple of videos that I really liked, as they show the beauty, majesty, and hazard of the mountains. I thought I’d share them with you.
The first was sent to my by my Bulgarian friend, Diana. She writes, “Viysotsky is my favourite Russian poet and singer. The name of this song is Farewell to the montains. He sings: Better mountains can be only mountains where nobody was…”
The second was shows beautiful clips from the BBC Documentary ‘Planet Earth’, Episode ‘Mountains’. The song is by Vangelis, titled “Ask the Mountains”.
If you look closely, you’ll find some scenes from Colorado. Lizard Head in the San Juans is the most distinct. Also, if you watch both videos you’ll notice some clips are shared between the two!
