Climbing the Alps

Climbing the Alps

You spend months training, weeks preparing, days getting there, hours climbing, and what do you get for all of that effort and endeavour? When friends and loved ones ask,
especially the ones who don't understand why in the first place, where exactly is it you're going/been? what was the name of the place again?
Why are you doing it again exactly? What do you do - show them a picture on your iPhone?
But does that cut it? Do they really understand?
