We all have our different reasons to seek the mountain.
The mountains provides respite, beautiful views, work, exercise, challenges, danger and joy.
The mountains have a magnetic effect on people. It's the ever changing landscape and weather, the seasons, the wilderness, the solitude, this hunting instinct that so many Norwegians have, that calls. For the people born and bread in this kind of environment and close to the mountains ranges, I think the mountains must have the same effect as the big ocean has on an island girl turned city dweller. It is in you, and at times you feel you need it to get on with life.
