MySpot: Take a Deep Breath of Mountain Air

"Gazing around, looking up at the lofty pinnacles above, 
which seemed to pierce the sky, looking down upon the world, — 
it seemed the whole world, so limitless it stretched away at her feet, — 
feeling that infinite unspeakable sense of nearness to Heaven, 
remoteness from earth which comes only on mountain heights, 
she drew in a long breath of delight, and cried: 
"At last! (...) This is freedom! This is joy!"

Helen Hunt Jackson
