Happy International Mountain Day

December 11 is International Mountain Day. Mountains play a big role in all aspects of geography. Physical geographers like mountains because of the rich geological and geomorphological library they are. Climatologists love the unique weather patterns which form in the mountainous areas. Human geographers like mountains because of the unique cultures which can live their because of the difficulties of communication and cross-culturalization.

Mountains and mountainous-environments are awe inspiring. The first time I saw snow-capped mountains was in Denver, Colorado. It was an awesome sight. Horrah for Mountains! Happy International Mountain Day!
