It was in the middle of winter when we came to Mount Brandon, dark, wet & cold. We came on purpose. We thought that you just can't experience a place so remote & so beautiful unless you were stripped of all your luxuries!! This is a place that is beautiful, majestic & nearly overwhelming. It's raw, powerful & wants to take over, you might let it but stand back & simply take it all in. It's wonderful & the secret here is nature & our planet at its most awe inspiring. It's all invigorating!!!
