Climbing up the mountain when coming above the treeline, that is were i am in my element. It's exactly where i want to be.

Mary and i are trying to find out what kind of mineral is in those rocks, very many explorers have done so before us, so we might find out through their reports, whatever it was, it was luckily not worth mining. down below, the road we came up there is an old gold mine.
