An ascent to the apex requires becoming acclimated to the altitude and adapted to the thin air, but if you have access to mountains, I advocate that you embrace the adventure.
I adore the views from such an angle. The air is like ambrosia, filled with scents of arnica and aster, lupine, geranium, and buttercup, sometimes around aspen.
Ambling along , one may be all alone, aloof from the cares of the world below. The view is so all-encompassing that it seems an apparition.
Absorb the abundant beauty, act in accord with nature, and be accompanied only by angels and airplanes. I assure you that you will acquire an assiduous addiction.
You can seek answers to anguish, alter an attitude, adopt the sky as your own, or advance an ambitious agenda of aerobic exercise.

I wondered if you would still play this meme after "Z", and now I know :) Alpine, and Almighty, somehow they just go togetherReplyDelete
Janie I share your alpine addiction! So much beauty - it's overwhelming! Adorable pictures and words!ReplyDelete
alpine altogether awesome.ReplyDelete
Absolutely amazing as always.ReplyDelete
Alpine Addiction is an amazing adventure.ReplyDelete
Wow Janie.... I'm impressed at ALL of your "A" words. It must have taken you awhile to write this post... I LOVE it.ReplyDelete
Love that photo of you sitting there WAY up there in the Alpines---just taking it all in--all around you!!! Amazing!
Incredible topography and photography... I'd give you an "A"!ReplyDelete
You could not have picked any more beautiful photos...Just gorgeous!!!ReplyDelete
In my case, "A" at airless altitude = ambulance! When you get to "B" though, beauty will be a definite key word, along with "breathing." Some of us have found the need to restrict our adventures to the lower elevations, and so are much more appreciative of those of you who bring us back the best of the mountaintops.ReplyDelete
P.S. Absolutely love the snow scene!
The alps, halleluja and what a credo you have written about it. Like always wonderful pictures to enjoy.ReplyDelete
I love that first photo: so much colour and so vibrant. Very alpine!ReplyDelete
Your new header picture is beautiful and I am once again impressed with your literary genius.ReplyDelete
What do you know? My word verification was magic!
Very nice post make us want to follow your step into the mountain. Beautiful photos and writing, thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Great ABC for Wednesday Janie. I feel like floating with you up there in your own kingdom as I read along your words. Reverent for nature's glory. Keep it up as you always do.ReplyDelete
Always I am amazed at your ability to arouse my desire to travel!ReplyDelete
You are very attractive in your mountain climbing attire. I do adore all the alpine flowers.
Happy ABC Wednesday!
Such a fun meme!
Always wonderful and over the top (in a good way)! I don't know how you come up with this! Alpine Addiction is absolutely amazing!ReplyDelete
I like that piece of wisdom - "You can seek answers to anguish, alter an attitude, adopt the sky as your own, or advance an ambitious agenda of aerobic exercise".ReplyDelete
But 'accompanied by angels and airplanes"? Hmm The angels only, any day for me :)
Awesome scenery, gorgeous pictures and a beautiful text, make all together a great post! Kind regards, PhilipReplyDelete
Awesome, aromatic, aesthetic, agreable, ancestoral, astonishing, authentic and beautiful(for next week)!ReplyDelete
How clever of you to find so many A words. Could you also do that with Q words? Anyway your Alpine adventure is awfully adorable, I am aware of that. Thanks for your visit Janie!ReplyDelete
Great set of photos. You can acually feel how crisp and clean the air is there.ReplyDelete
What an awesome view ! wow.ReplyDelete
Oh ... so beautiful! That first shot is stunning! It's my favourite of all of them, though all of the others are great pictures and I also love the empty landscape with the clouds.ReplyDelete
I think I would love an alpine environment. The air alone would be worth the trip!
Just discovered your blog and am enjoying the lovely photos and your adventuresReplyDelete
I can't see how someone can NOT get addicted to Alpine - it's beautiful beyond words!ReplyDelete
Very well-written post, and the pictures are great :)
Loved the umm, alliteration and the many gorgeous invitations. Nicely done--Happy Wednesday!ReplyDelete
Simply beautiful! Let us hope that more people are beginning to realize the importance of preserving such natural treasures.ReplyDelete
Can only say, 'the top of the world' to you!! How wonderful to be there - beuatiful scenery and crisp air to enjoy.ReplyDelete
I can certainly see why you have an addiction - beautiful!ReplyDelete
So much alpine beauty, I can see how it could be so addicting! Gorgeous wildflower shots. Great job on the A commentary.ReplyDelete
Oooohhh... I like the yellow flowers in the first picture. They remind me of that Van Gogh painting called sunflowers.ReplyDelete
Beautiful and breathtaking !ReplyDelete
Wonderful photos and such beautiful words to go with them!ReplyDelete
