Beloved Blue Mountains!


I guess we have all read the mountains being described as blue somewhere or the other and frankly till a long time in my life I used to think its only poetic and that no such thing ever existed, that it was just a figment of imagination of some writers and they probably felt mountains being described as brown or green or black wouldn’t make them that exotic and wouldn’t bring that many people to the mountains and hence they used the adage “Blue Mountains”

Over the last few years I have been fortunate enough to be able to make a regular trip to the Himalaya’s and have been lucky enough to witness some vast mountain ranges, I have actually seen and realised that Blue Mountains exist! 🙂

There is something about these slopes on the surface of the earth, these high rising mountains lining up one after the other that just amazes me. Especially when you can find a spot to sit and actually gaze at the sheer enormity of the place they call The Himalaya’s you should consider yourself truly blessed to be able to absorb all this by your eyes. The above picture was taken when we were actually leaving the Himalayas and returning to the plains, I have always been enchanted by the mountains and will probably never ever be able to see the Himalaya’s enough in this life time and hence am always kind of sombre when leaving the mountains.


Looking at the rear view or the side view mirror and realising and almost bemoaning the fact that I have to leave the mountains almost makes me sad, I sometimes get lost in the gazing and that it is almost fatal on a road trip! Thankfully the mountains have always been kind to me and always ensured and sent me back safely. I long already having come back just 10 days before to go back. I surely must have been somewhere there in the mountains in my last life, if there was any such thing!

    My childhood summer vacations were devoted to journeying to various hill stations at the Himalayas and every trip we would discover a new aspect! We definitely haven’t done it as far and as extensively as you have though!!
    Love all your photos on FB!!

      You should consider yourself most lucky that you got to journey so much in the grandest landscape of all on this planet! I have only started recently and am enchanted with the place. I don’t think this one life time is enough to explore the Himalaya’s!

      Thank you! 🙂

    How beautiful is that!! One day, Hitchy, one day! It makes me so sad that I’ve not ever gone anywhere close to the Himalayas. One day for sure
