Ain’t No Mountain High Enough
I have long been planning to join a mountaineering group back in college, but my mother’s fears – the perils of getting injured or worst, getting myself killed with no one taking responsibility for my life – overpowered my desire to hike mountains. Not that I am afraid, I made the conscious decision not to join out of respect. Now that I am past my mid 20s and many years wiser, my desire to hike mountains never faded.
I keep seeing in my newsfeed some of my friends successfully climbing mountains after mountains. Which makes me wonder, had I persuaded my mom, perhaps I am now a pro-climber already. Climbing mountains nowadays became easier with numerous mountaineering groups offering their expertise to interested climbers. I still have my youth so I made a list.
