As concrete melts into dirt and grass
and skyscrapers become pine trees,
I fall into the snow and promise
myself to stay until spring.

As the snow continues to fall,
I am covered until I become
the snow and the earth and
the roots of spring’s growth.

What was a full mind
is replaced with snow,
ice, and water dispalcing
everything until there is nothing.

Welcome to Mountains and Ice.  This blog will be about nature, tackling mountains and ice, and the journey it takes to get there.

I have often eluded to a deep fascination, almost obsession, with mountains and ice on here.  I have had very tasty bites and morsels of these portions of nature, that have left me in its grasp.  I have made the mindful commitment to venture out and tackle a mountain or two, starting with Mt. Rainier in 2013.  With that, I created a new page titled, appropriately enough, Mountains and Ice.  This will be a collection of photos, writings, updates on training, and anything else that is related.

Here is a stock photo of Mt. Rainier.
