Make it to the high ground
Being on top or down below mountains draw one into realizing how long they have been here, taking a beating from every storm thrown at them, from the very beginning after being pushed up by hot lava beneath, making a mountain.

Long before our time:
The rocks of the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands belong, in the main, to the Beaufort and Ecca Groups (of the Karoo Supergroup), aged 220–310 million years, and are therefore considerably older than the Drakensberg lavas (aged 180 million years) which cap the escarpment on the border between KwaZulu-Natal and Lesotho. - Source Wikipedia

Similar not quite the same, mountains have moods with every season back to October 2012:
Highly recommended, is finding a place in nature affording time for oneself. Dwarfed in nature ones mind drifts back to early humans who relied on finding caves close to running water, food, all the things modern day living is taking for granted.
We need nature, nature definitely does not need us, so why are humans so hell bent on damaging everything laid in their path?
Panoramic view of the Southern Berg looking up toward the Northern Berg, only a slight elevation when you see the surrounding mountains.
Driving back down toward the coast we go through an area known as The Valley of a Thousand Hills, land of the Zulu farming communities all along the hillsides in rural KwaZulu-Natal.
Sometimes I envy the life they lead, perhaps being brought up in cities we forget the essence of life and living, forever chasing another goal never stopping to give thought to our surroundings.
