Travel Theme: Mountains

As I have mentioned in previous blog posts, this is an extremely busy time of year at work. My brain is working much more than full-time right now, so I have not had the brain power to do much more than the Tunes Tuesdays series here lately. But Third Eye Mom’s post on the Where’s My Backpack Travel Theme of mountains grabbed me, since mountains are my happy place.

I didn’t get to share any photos from our trip South yet, so I will use this opportunity to do just that. Here are my favorite recent mountain photos from El Chalten and Calafate, on the Argentine side of Patagonia.

  1. I did not expect to see ice and snow! I am told that there are a lot of German-speaking folks in Argentina and as I speak German I have often daydreamed about buying a vineyard there and living out my life there! 🙂 I can’t wait to hear some stories about your trip.

  2. I am a sea person, but I do enjoy the mountains too. But somehow nothing can quite compare to waves and the smell of salt on the air

  3. I never quite understood why you thought you needed to take lessons in photography. Your sense of composition and your technique seem to me to be outstanding! These are great photos.

  4. I’ve missed your pictures. I like both mountains and the sea. Mood would dictate which I need. Both are peaceful and calm. By the sea I want some movement or activity. Mountains I want to rest and reflect.

  5. Gorgeous, Jen, absolutely stunning! xoxoM

  6. I prefer the ocean near a mountain. 8)
    Fabulous pics!!!!

  7. Awesome! When did you go there? Did you know I wet to the exact same place a few years ago. I loved it there! 🙂

  8. A great mountain destination, one I haven’t visited yet, but really want to.

  9. i love those ice walls. I haven’t travelled many places in winter. Something about mountains makes me very happy – I think it’s because to me they mean freedom.

  10. My favourite high place in the world is Zhangjiajie National Forrest Park in China. These places you showed are spectacular. Which one is best for trekking?
