#594 is a romantic quote, that in certain moods, I can relate to. As for the other quote, I certainly climb mountains, well hills really, to see the view and get exercise. For some reason, I simply have no desire to climb a mountain just to tell people about it. I like watching the airplanes, helicopters, cars, and people down below and I like taking pictures and looking at flowers and rocks. I also like hiking above tree line because my allergies decrease, like they do in the desert and in the middle of the ocean.
