I remember hiking up mount Washington many years ago .. the excitement and peace from reaching the top was just breathtaking.
Shelly Sweigart says
I would love to see the Rocky Mountains. I have always grown up in a mountainous area but most of our mountains are low and filled with trees and such. I would love to see snow capped moutains like the ones in the stamp and die set.
Isabel Z says
We are from the East Coast but for two amazing years, we got to live in Colorado and I still remember how breathtaking the mountains were and how I never got tired of looking at them.
Carrie in IN says
I have never been to the mountains. I think it’d be glorious to be a mountain climber for a day. Hiking to those heights, I can’t even imagine how close to God one would feel!
Susan P says
We live near the mountains, so we get to enjoy them every day. I would love to visit the Grand Tetons one day – they look amazing!
Caren Char says
I remember the muddy fun my family and I had while hiking on the Oahu Manoa Falls trail. I also distinctly remember taking a picture of the sign that said, “Danger! Don’t go beyond this point!”, and then taking a picture of the groups of people who decided to ignore the sign, go beyond the point, and frolic in the water.
Ann Merry says
I have never actually been to the mountains, but I visit our daughter in Bellingham, WA, and we can see Mt. Baker in the distance. It is quite majestic! And of course, flying over the mountains to get to Washington can also showcase some beautiful mountain scenery!
Wow! All the stamps and dies look great!
Coming from the prairies, I love and appreciate the mountains! I still remember camping near the Alps when I was a child and my parents took us on a road trip through Europe one magical summer. It was hot during the day, but chilly at night!
I love going to the White Mountains in New Hampshire. I went a few times as a child and have taken my children many times. Mount Washington is my favorite. There aren’t too many places you can ride in a cog train up the side of a mountain.
Linda Sodano says
We live in Pennsylvania and are about 3 hours away from the Pocono Mountains. I have been there several times and they are magnificient!
Pam Young says
We went to the Smoky Mountains when I was probably around 9 or 19. The thing that was amazing was the bears came into our campsite at night looking for food. I saw my first black bear there with her cubs!!
We took a two week trip several years ago – our whole extended family rented a passenger van and we spent time at Mt. Vernon, Williamsburg, and ended up travelling along the Smoky Mountains. We had a wonderful time, filled with lots of sweet memories. You have another amazing release this month – love the cute cloche fillers for summer, and of course all of the mountain-related stamp and dies. Karen
Terri W says
When my mom lived in Tennessee and my son was little we took a trip to Chattanooga to see Ruby Falls and Rock City. The swinging bridge was not my favorite but my son loved it. So much beauty in one place.
Never been to the mountains so it’s a dream to go to any place that has them!!
Chris Cross says
I am actually leaving on Friday to visit Denali Park in Alaska. Hoping for an amazing mountain vacation.
Cindy H. says
Shortly after I graduated from high school, I was on a bus with a girl friend heading to West Virginia (where she was from) and we went over the mountains at what felt like a very high rate of speed. I was terrified. I’m not good with heights and that kind of put me off actually being on a mountain. I have seen other mountains but remain at a distance and admire them for their majestic beauty.
Laurie Page says
My late husband and i spent a week with our young chldren at a cabin on the Big Thompson River outside of Estes Park. We hiked up in the mountains, fished in a breathtaking lake, played in the snow near the peaks and enjoyed meals on the deck as the river rushed past the cabin. One of the best vacations ever.
I still remember travelling with my Grandparents every year through the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia. Fifty years later I still have wonderful memories of those summers.
Miriam Prantner says
We actually just got back from a trip to the Black Hills and Badlands. We live on the East Coast, so it was a very different part of the country for us and so much fun. Lots of climbing and hiking, we had a great time!
Deb in IL says
My most memorable trip to the mountains was just last year when I spent 2 weeks in Alaska and visited Denali National Park. Nothing prepares you for the beauty of this great state or the true majesty of the mountains there. Even though it was drizzly and cloudy, and we didn’t get to see Denali itself, I was in awe of the beautiful vistas, and cannot wait to go back.
Sandy Dayhoff says
Years ago when I was a little kid, my dad and his siblings (there were 10 children in his family!) co-owned a cabin in the mountains. It was surrounded by apple orchards and an old fashioned water pump was outside that the kids always wanted to play with! It wasn’t much, but we always had a great time there!
Leigh Penner says
My most memorable trip to the mountains was when we drove from our home in the Canadian prairies to Vancouver island five years ago to celebrate my twin brother and my 40th birthday together. Driving through the Rocky Mountains is breathtaking!
Victoria h says
On our honeymoon we cycled down the blue mountains (of coffee fame) in Jamaica on bikes that you pedalled backwards to brake. It was exhilarating and scary at the same time. Although this did give me a sense of achievement but I don’t think I’d do it again!
Kathy D says
We were lucky enough to take the Glacier Express through the Swiss Alps (St. Moritz to Zermatt) back in the 1990s. Amazing views, picture perfect Swiss chalets. It was rather magical.
Vicki Finger says
This year in January, my husband and I traveled to Phoenix for CHA. We took two weeks and had several stops along the way with friends and some of the sight. My favorite part of the trip was traveling from our friends ranch in Kansas to Red River New Mexico. I had no idea there were mountains in that part of the state as they are the southern most part of the Rocky Mountains. I have never seen such a beautiful place as that last few hours in the car until we got to our car.He had been there 40 years ago and wanted me to see it. Since it was January, we were often driving in snow. It was very romantic and very beautiful. We got up the next morning to a view of the ski lift taking folks up the mountain.
Some of my favorite photos from a vacation were photos from the Swiss Alps. So beautiful!
Dana Kirby says
Well this is a hard question…I love Yosemite National Park, and The Grand Canyon is amazing. But, one of my favorite trips was to Jackson Hole and Yellowstone, just gorgeous! Thanks for another great release PTI!!
Yosemite! Hiking around these massive granite formations was breathtaking and refreshing for the soul.
Samantha Johnson says
Last summer my cousin John (who I only knew from facebook ) planned a family reunion in Seattle (my family lives in Chicago area ) , he flew us all there and treated us all to a 7 day Alaskan cruise. I had never seen the mountains before. It was amazing to be able to connect with my cousins.
I am very lucky to be living in Alberta and having grown up in Calgary we were very close to the mountains and we would actually go fishing there almost every weekend. When I was as little older we started camping there. It is so beautiful to wake up and your first view are the mountains that surround you!
During my deployment in Afghanistan, I got to see the mountains via ground and helicopter. Although the location was dangerous and there wasn’t a fun factor attached, getting to see the beautiful landscape was memorable.
Kristie Goulet says
My favorite memory of visiting, I grew up living near mountains, was visiting Mt. Rushmore! Such an awesome experience with my family!
Vickie D says
I most enjoy the Smokey Mountains because we visited there as a child. I love the streams & lush landscape. I am always in the outlook for bears!
Last September my husband and I explored the Colorado Springs area and drove up Pike’s Peak. It was just gorgeous but very cold and windy at the top!
Christy Bray says
My soul’s happy place is Crested Butte , CO. I’ve been going to ski in winter and hike in summer for over 10 years now. We own a small business so we can’t move there – but hey, it’s good to have a fave baca spot, right? Last summer I actually had a real bear encounter where a bear came 3′ from me where I was asleep in my tent with my dog. He stole my dog food (which I should not have left there.). Then he went on to check out my car 1/4 mile away from my camp site. He left his grubby paw prints all over the side of my car as he looked in and checked it out. He even tried my door handles to see if it was unlocked! Thankfully for me but sadly for the other family, he chose tovransack the car parked next to me – busted out their window , climbed in and went to town! There was coffee, honey, water everywhere! It was quite a memory! It won’t keep me from going back! But I’m staying in a condo for a while!
I remember very vividly visiting Switzerland, arriving in Zermatt, opening the hotel room balcony door to see the Matterhorn in all its splendor. The blue sky and brilliant sunshine highlighted the snow-covered beauty of this famous peak.
My most favorite trip to the mountains was the first time I hiked Camelback with my best friend back in 1982!! Each experience thereafter, the mountains get bigger, better and more beautiful!
Thanks for the chance to win!
Irene S says
I have never been to the mountains but I would love to go to any mountain destination.
Linda C says
I remember not so much one trip but when we lived on an island we would go up the highest mountain there and be above the clouds. We would watch the sunset over the ocean. It was do beautiful.
Teresa Currie says
Really enjoyed our family reunion in 2006 at Zion National Park in Utah. The red Navajo sandstone cliffs and spectacular scenery combined with treasured family time together remain a cherished memory!
I’m in the Snowy Mountains of New South Wales right now and snow is forecast so the skiing should be good!
So far my favorite has been the trip my husband and I took to the Smokey Mountains! So beautiful…….just like this release!
My best trip to the mountains was definitely my honeymoon, 34 years ago, to the mountains of central PA.
S. Molinari says
I lived on the desert, so anytime we went up into the cool tree filled mountains it was a treat!
Melanie Ann MacKenzie says
Took a trip from Ontario to Alberta a while back. We flew to Calgary and drove from there up through Banff and Jasper National parks. The scenery was very nice but we sort of turned a corner in the road and there they were…the mountains. I was utterly stunned at how beautiful they were. It is a moment I will never forget. Thanks for a chance to win. Cheers.
Our honeymoon was to Vail in Feb ’69 to ski. Vail was a small village of two cross streets then. : ) A most memorable mountain trip!
When we lived in Pennsylvania, we were in the foothills of the Appalachians. The views of forests and rolling hills were always lovely, especially at Ohiopyle State park…near Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater and Kentucky Knob. Beautiful!
The first holidays that I spent with my current husband was to Norway, to visit my sister (whom my husband had never met until then) and to do some travelling. It was my husband’s first trip abroad and it made a lasting impression and it made me realise we should never forget to enjoy the little things in life and not take anything for granted. If we hadn’t travelled to Norway, I’m not sure we would ever have ended up living in Crete, Greece.
This is a hard one as each mountain is unique in its own way. We’ve been climbing Colorado 14’ers for a number of years now and they are stunning! Hitting some lower elevation, we’ve recently been hiking the Appalachian Trail. Two weeks ago we were on top of Big Bald, a 360 degree view of the southern Blue Ridge Mountains…stunning! That coupled with Max Patch and you need go no further than your own back door, as Dorothy would say!
For a number of years we did work projects in Kentucky and one of the most beautiful vistas is at Cumberland Gap in the Cumberland Mountains where you can see Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia.
Erin S says
My favorite trip to the mountains was going to the Rocky Mountains with my husband. They are majestic. We’ve lived on the east coast for several years but have recently moved back to the Midwest. Our next family vacation is to the Rockies.
Christine Nixon says
I grew up in West Virginia and my entire childhood was a trip to the mountains and I love them. A few years ago we visited Maine and hiked up Cadillac Mountain and the view of Bar Harbir from there was magic for me.
Diane Schwartz says
My husband and I were blessed to go on our honeymoon to Alaska. Beautiful scenery and awe inspiring nature, especially Mt. Denali! It was amazing. Thanks for the chance to win and for sharing your inspiration and creativity!
Kelly Flaherty says
Smoky Mountains – camping with my husband. There is nothing as romantic as the mountain air, the smell of the trees, the sounds of nature and a good man to protect you from the bears!
Terri (Blindstamper) says
It would have to be the Rocky Mountains when I first met my husband’s family in Colorado. It was my first time and they were awe-inspiring…so beautiful. We got to travel the national park and drive up in them.
The most memorable trip up a mountain was when I climbed Mt Sinai in Egypt. It was quite a journey! I sat on a camel till about midway in total darkness (so scary!) and thereafter climbed all the way up and saw the sunrise. It was Amazing!!
When I was 8 years old my family went to Lake Louise and hiked up to the tea room, it was such an amazing experience, I’ve been wanting to go back and relive it! Maybe one day!
jan metcalf says
Last fall we attended the most spectacular wedding on the north side of Lake Tahoe! It was a WOW event, so lovely paired with both mountains and the lake views! My son is now living in Boulder with a view of the mountains every day, so lucky he is!
Linda Lander says
My most memorable trip to the mountains was the summer of my Jr year in college.. I not only visited the Rocky Mts. But I stayed fir the summer, I got a job at a family lodge and spent a glorious summer living and working in cool, cool Colorado. Met great families and even rride across The Continental Divide on horseback!!! What an memorable experience for a Texas gal gal who thought it was 100+ in the summer. 51 years later I still treasure that mountain visit!!!?
Cindy O says
The beautiful mountains in the Pacific NW, and especially the deep deep blue of Crater Lake. Truly breathtaking scenery.
Rita Wright says
My husband and I spent our first New Year’s Eve and Day at an amazing bed and breakfast in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. It was so relaxing and such a beautiful place. We were finally able to go back last month and it was just as amazing.
I love mountains! One of my favorite memories is snow tubing on Mt Rainer when I was a teenager living in WA. It was so much fun!
First time I went up to the top of a mountain in Tucson. And saw the views of Tucson.
Lisa m says
Our family trip to Tennessee to see the great smoky mountains, we rented a cabin in the mountains with my husbands family, did lots of exploring,watched a dinner show with lumberjacks and just had a great time being together all 17 of us!
Annie D says
As a college sophomore, I spent spring quarter in Israel and flew home via Europe, sightseeing by train with a Eurail Pass. L’Abri in the Swiss Alps was one destination where I could stay a blissful ten days. The last three nights, I slept for free in a farmer’s hayloft with newborn kittens. Outside the barn were the majestic Alps. At night, the stars in the sky were matched by twinkling lights in the villages below. I have never forgotten that magical sight!
Lori B says
Many years ago my family took a trip to the
Canadian Rockies. Coming from the flat cornfields of MN, I was awestruck by their beauty. Someday I hope to return there.
Donna Phelan says
We went to Maine for our honeymoon just about 29 years ago. Spent some wonderful days at Acadia National Park hiking all around Cadillac Mountain. The beginning of our married life together. Sweet and simple! xoxo
Lori Lehanne says
My most memorable trip to the mountains was when I was 15 and took a backpacking trip with my youth group. It was definitely a growing experience!
On our first major family vacation we were driving through the Colorado Rockies. A semi overturned on a hairpin turn; the road was blocked for hours. My dad (a gearhead from way back) decided to go off road in the station wagon. It was quite memorable!
My most memorable trip to the mountains was during a road trip out west. We saw the Grand Tetons in the summer and they were amazing! We couldn’t believe how beautiful the area was.
Beth Stiver says
On our honeymoon we traveled out west, my first time. I remember how in awe I was when we went to Rocky Mountain National Park. It was June and when we got to the top of the tallest mountain it was snowing. Then we visited Yosemite National Park and that was so breath-taking. We live in such a beautiful country.
Connie G says
Many years ago, we tried to get to Denali National Park. We had rented a motor home and was on our way when we encountered snow half way up and had to turn around and go back. Sad face. I do hope to get there someday!
Nancy Penir says
It has always been a dream of mine to spend a week in winter with the whole family in the snow. Hiking, skiing and enjoying the brisk cold with those I love. Enjoying them is pure enjoyment for me. Love the release (as always!) this month. The mountains are wonderful, horizontal and vertical. Love the woodie too!
It was more than 20 years ago. My first (and only) winter Christmas was spent in Whisler, Canada. I had never seen mountains like that – so high, so beautiful, so majestic. We just don’t have mountains like that here in Australia! It was a beautiful, magical white Christmas.
I would love to one day visit the Spanish Pyrenees mountains and trek on the long distance GR 11 trail. The GR 11, also known as the ruta Transpirenaica in Spain, is part of the extensive GR footpath network of Spanish paths, tracks and trails.
Sandy Rizzo says
My most memorable trip was when I was in my early 20s – 30+ years ago. We hiked 11 miles to the summit in the Snowbird mountains of North Carolina. I was young, invincible and with impeccable strength and agility. Those where some wonderful times! Oh and the summit had an amazing 360 degree view!
Dodie Northcutt says
It was the week of Christmas, exactly one week before my wedding. For some reason my father decided that this year his new family, my sister and I, my fiancé and extended family would spend several days at our vacation home to celebrate. It was 4 hours away from our home. We had never done this before and I was so busy trying to tie up all the wedding details that I begged him to reconsider. Well begging did no good. So off we go for four days, our return scheduled for 3 days before my wedding. I was a nervous wreck the entire trip and one the third day of the trip it started to snow and snow and snow. The most snowfall the area had seen in years. Our house was toward the top of a steep rocky dirt raid. We were snowed in. My fathers new wife’s response to my panic was “well, you can always pick another date”. What?! At that very moment with two days before my wedding my fiancé decided we were headed home. We made it back, the four hour trip turning into a twelve hour trip. The wedding was beautiful despite the sleet and two feet of snow that begin falling that afternoon. Our plane heading for Hawaii the next morning was the only plane that departed from the airport for several days due to the record breaking snow in our hometown. This was my truly unforgettable mountain trip!
My most memorable trip to the mountains was in 2002, in Leadville, Colorado, when I hiked to the summit of Mount Galena, which is over 13,000 feet. It was the first time I had done something like that, and hiked that high. I felt like I could see the entire world. It really made me see how small I am and how large Nature is!
Katie Jones says
When I was younger my family used to rent a house at Lake Tahoe the week after Christmas each year. It was always such a fun time of skiing, playing in the snow, and just having time inside playing games and puzzles. My favorite memory is being outside, having a huge all-family snowball fight with the backdrop of the majestic Sierras.
I loved taking my children camping – tents, cottages, cabins – fishing, boating, hiking – it was always a new and wonderful adventure and somehow the food always tasted better when it was cooked outside!
Liz M. says
My favorite mountains are the Adirondacks in upstate New York. My family and I spent a week at a cabin there every summer during my childhood, and are planning a reunion trip this year! I cannot wait to share this place with my son!
Mary W says
I rented a tiny cabin on a river with my granddaughter. We stayed for several days, played cards, drove up into the mountains during the day, and ate sandwiches on top in the clouds. She was only 10 but I can’t forget anything about the trip with her and my favorite place, Blue Ridge mountains.
Debbie P says
I live in Washington state and have been around mountains my whole life. Right now I’m sitting in my living room and looking out the window at a breathtaking view of Mt. Rainier. The Montana Rockies, the Washington Cascades and Olympics, the Tetons….. all spectacular. My husband and I recently cruised to Alaska where you have 360 degree views of majestic, snow covered mountains. I guess that would be my favorite (recent) trip 🙂
Diana K says
Unlike most people, I am not a fan of the mountains. I lived in Vancouver for a year and found it to be very claustrophobic! However, I did do a day trip to Mont Pilatus from Zurich one time and that was okay. Mainly because of the Swiss chocolates, LOL.
I’ve never been on a mountain trip. That’s a trip I’d like to take some day. To any mountain just to experience the beauty.
I grew up in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Parkway, so Psalm 121 has always been one of my favorites. Last summer we made a trip to the Canadian Rockies. They are so spectacular!!
Linda Hedfelt says
I would love to go to Colorado to see The Rockies and also have seen many beautiful pictures of the Grand Tetons….both of those places are on my travel wish list!!! Mountains have to be the most beautiful part of nature!!
Michele F says
Just arrived home from our “dream” adventure – SIX of our fabulous National Parks – yes. 6!!
I’m loving this release!
Tami B says
Any trip to the mountains is memorable for me. One of the best was a ski trip my family took to Jackson, Wyoming at Christmas. My dream is to see Denali someday.
Susan Beauchaine says
Going to the Grand Tetons & Yellowstone when my 2 oldest were 3&4. It was amazing and awe inspiring. The colors of those mountains are spectacular. God is an amazing artist!!!
I’ve only ever made one trip to the mountains and that was to Colorado to meet a scrapbooking friend, then while I was there I was able to meet another friend I had made through card making. It’s so funny I jump on a plane to travel across the country to meet card making friends I made online but tell my daughter to never meet people she friends online. Luckily for me paper people are the best!
Lisa S. says
For several years I went out every summer to Bear Trap Ranch outside of Colorado Springs. I had many formative conversations and friendships there. The mountains will always be special to me.
Peggy S says
I hope to one day return to Whistler, BC. It’s one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been.
Cindy Otto says
My most memorable trip to the mts. was our last family trip to Banff, Alberta, Canada before the boys left home to go to college or get married. It was a beautiful trip and one I know the boys loved. Now they talk about taking their young families there to experience the beauty.
Nita K. says
I’ve never taken a trip to the mountains. I do dream of visiting Colorado in summer and being able hike and fish with my sons. They would love that!
Kristie H says
My most favorite place to go in the mountains is Banff. I’ve only been there once but would love to go back!
Mary-Anne V. says
We have fond memories of the mountainous regions on the Hawaiian islands…absolutely gorgeous.
Vikki H says
Growing up in Lincoln, NE we often took our vacations to Colorado. I still get excited to take the drive up Rocky Mountain National Park. But the most memorable was a nighttime drive on the island of Hawaii to one of the volcanos. You could see the glow from the eruption in the sky for several miles.
Kay Tillman says
I am currently on my most memorable youth trip in the NC mountains with our youth from church. It is wonderful to wake up to the beautiful cool mornings and the wonderful views with the kids. Can’t wait to purchase tonight.
Eight year’s ago, we bought a house in LaQuinta Cove, CA. We moved there in July 2013, but only lived there for eight months (another story). It was called a cove because we were surrounded by mountains on three sides. Imagine, waking up ad looking out the windows to see mountains and palm trees every way you looked! For the first six months we lived there, I was still working (luckily from home). Each day at lunch time after September, we would go hike in the mountains for an hour. It was just beautiful and one of the things I miss since we moved back home. We go back each year and hike the mountains again!
While my family was stationed in Morocco we spent a weekend in the Atlas Mountains. While the mountains weren’t overly dramatic the snowball fights were. We pretended we were back home in the USA and enjoying winter.
Marcia Hill says
My folks liked to travel each Summer when my brothers and I were young, so we saw quite a few mountain ranges! My favorite had to be the Beartooth mountains in Montana…very majestic and snowcapped, but my favorite part was the meadows of wildflowers that were mixed in with the mountain ranges…just oodles of beautiful color!! :0)
I live in the flatlands of Florida, so we were awestruck when a trip to North Carolina took us across the Blue Ridge Parkway. It seemed like we were above the clouds! We also did a bit of day hiking on the Appalachian Trail. Years later we still talked about the beauty of the Appalachians.
Angela W says
I lived in Westminster, CO, which is a suburb of Denver. When my family came to visit, we would drive up to Estes Park (still my most favorite place in the world). One time, my Dad and I both stepped on a bench to see the gorgeous view even better. Apparently, stepping on that bench is what turns on the blizzards, because as soon as we stepped on it, it started snowing like crazy! We had to leave to get back down the mountains before the roads got too bad. We still laugh about it today!
Cathy Y says
My husband & I went on a land & cruise trip to Alaska. We toured Denali National Park and of course hoped to see Denali Mountain. As we were driving by an enormous cloud bank, the bus driver said, look right over there – that’s Denali. You can’t see it but it’s there! The guide told us that only about 20% of the people who tour the park get to actually see the mountain, and that it’s most visible in winter when almost no one comes to the park. So. . . I am very happy for @amyksheffer that she & her family got to see it!!!
Carol (HB) says
When I was 8 my family went to CO to visit my cousins (this was 50 years ago!) I still remember that trip and seeing how magnificent those mountains are! I also remember riding up the mountain to Pikes Peak in my uncle’s station wagon in the very back seat where you sit backwards. LOL
I’m dreaming of camping in the Utah mountains. We just moved here and they’ve been calling to me. Now to just find the time!
This was a great release! So many great products that I must have. Thanks for your hard work each and every month!
Althea Robles says
There are some beautiful mountain getaways here in Colorado. A few of my favorite are Estes Park and Granby.
Love the rocky mountain air!
Mimi R says
We drove through these windy roads to get to the mountains in Corsica, France! It’s a beautiful sight to see – the craggy mountains were surrounded by the beautiful Mediterranean Sea! It’s definitely a trip I’ll never forget.
Sarah T. says
I grew up in the Fens in England – the flattest place you’ll ever see – so it doesn’t take much of an elevation to impress me. My favourite mountains to visit though are the Alpes-Maritimes, in the area around Nice and Monaco. Something about villages clinging to the rock face with the dramatic blue of the sea far below makes them impossible to forget.
Darla S. says
Our family made quite a few camping trips to the Rocky Mountains when our kids were growing up. Nothing like waking up to the smell of mountain air and breakfast cooking on the campstove!
Teresa F says
Really want to go to Colorado and see the Rocky Mountains! Totally on my bucket list. Great new releases!
Diana L says
We visited our daughter in Colorado and hiked in the mountains to see waterfalls. It was beautiful.
Since I grew up in Las Vegas, going to the mountains was a treat to enjoy for an afternoon and then you would go home to warm weather. We did not go very often, so there the desire is not much there. We did occasionally go inter-tubing, which was fun. We took a trip to Mammoth Mountain, in May of last year, and while there, a slight snow storm blew through. It was beautiful!
Edie B says
I was born in Colorado and lived there for many years. The Rockies were at our back door. Now I live in Washington and have the Olympics and Cascades. Going to the mountains is quite easy. I guess the most memorable trip would have been the first.
Meg Crawford says
My most memorable trip to the mountains was in May of 2005. That is when my husband and I were married in the Canadian Rockies at Lake Louise, Alberta. What a magical place that is!
We went to Yellowstone 2 years ago as a family, and it was just so amazingly beautiful! We love, love to be in the mountains. I sure enjoyed this week’s PTI inspiration, and I will eagerly be waiting for my supplies to arrive soon.
Sharri Reeves says
Years ago, my husband and I took my mother to the mountains of northern Georgia to visits cousins. We spent 2 days sightseeing and even visited the Cabbage Patch doll hospital. On our way back to Oklahoma we took the long way through N. Carolina and took a tour of the Biltmore mansion. It is breathtaking but even more spectacular was running into a friend from New Orleans who I hadn’t seen in 6 years. amazing coincidence!
Linda C says
We spent our honeymoon in the mountains of Colorado skiing. I’ve been to several different mountain ranges but that one was the best!
Janet Goshorn says
I would love to see the Rocky Mountains. All the photos I have seen look so breathtaking and hopefully someday I can see them for myself.
Swinging on the bridge of Grandfather Mountain with my husband and children is one of my favorite memories. A little scary with breathtaking views.
Cathy b says
I am fortunate to live near Whistler mountain in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. I love the powdery snow and the mountain village. It is magical!
Amy Kolling says
Colorado mountains visiting good friends is my mountain memory. Eating outside and having the mountains in front of you……breathtaking!
Debbie Archer says
I love the mountains! I live in NC and it’s a very short drive to beautiful mountain ranges. Also, I have many fond memories of visiting my grandmother who lived in the mountains of Alabama.
Greta H says
My most memorable has to be for one of my birthdays–years ago. We decided to stay in a cabin at a resort near Mt Bachelor & have a weekend of cross country skiing. Turned out, there was a big snowstorm & it took us much longer than usual to get to the parking lot where you leave the car & get on the snow cat with your luggage. The cat was already loading up, so we hurried to park & get our stuff out of the trunk. As we turned around the cat was leaving without us as it continued to snow. We planned to ski out & let the cat take our luggage. Hubby said, we’ll ski in & send our key with them the next day to get our luggage & bring it back. Turned out to be a blizzard & if we hadn’t been skiing down the road (& hubby was an experienced skier) we would never have made it! When we finally reached the place, the people said “Where did you come from–we’re snowed in!” No one else came & not one left. There was too much snow to even ski! We never did get our luggage–just bought toothbrushes, toothpaste & sweatshirts in the little store & managed with what we were wearing & had in our backpacks (BCP & my contacts!) The storm ended the night before we were to leave & it was a beautiful & EASY ski out going up hill, as opposed to downhill in a blizzard & really wasn’t sure I was going to make it. Will never forget that BD–haha!
Lynne S in GS says
Spent several weeks in the Bitteroot Valley in Montana exploring all of the mountains in the area, camping along the Bitteroot River. A M A Z I N G is complete understatement!
Living on the prairie all my life, it was a thrill to take the family to Colorado a few years ago to finally see mountains for the first time….that first glimpse was breath-taking! Unfortunately, so were some of the drop offs along the roads there as well! I decided boring, flat drives on the prairie with only views of cornfields maybe isn’t so bad after all. ?
Sandy Vincent says
My most memorable trip to the mountains was when we took a trip with our church youth group to the Smoky Mountains. That is a gorgeous place!
Paula e. says
One of the first vacations I took after getting out of college was to Colorado. My sister and I drove there (in a station wagon similar to the one in On there Wagon) and hiked in Estes Park. I have fond memories of this.
Maria C F says
I would love to take a trip to experience the Grand Canyon!
Karen Hetherington says
My favorite memory of mountains was a trip in my childhood. Our family went up Cannon Mountain in N.H. on the tramway. It was like heaven up there. It was in October and the thick frost was everywhere.
Annette Snyder says
It was the time that my husband asked me to marry him. We were in the Grand Tetons.
Every year my family spends Memorial Day in the Pocono Mountains. Even though I no longer go I have very fond memories of family there.
Jennifer L. says
The Swiss Alps are the most stunning mountains that I’ve seen! Took an overnight train and woke up to views of those mountains. Hope that I can go back some day.
Julie Clawser says
Friends of our family had a vacation home in the Poconos, PA, and they would invite us up there regularly to go canoeing in summers and skiing in winters – those are great memories!
Jess S. says
Lots of great new products in this release! As always. Last year I had the amazing experience of walking the Inca trail to Machu Picchu. Day three on the trail was foggy, so there were no views, but it made the mountain silent and mystical.
Luanne Ford says
A few years ago, we went to Nice, France. My husband forgot his drivers license, so I was the one driving a rental car from Nice to Monte Carlo. We stopped at several scenic overlook spots, so I could enjoy the amazing views of the Mediterranean too. It was quite the experience that I will never forget!
When I was about 10 my family drove down to Florida, stopping in Georgia on the way. We stayed in a motel that backed up to the side of a steep cliff in the Smokies. Coming from the flatlands of Illinois I just found it to be so new and different. It was all green and wild and misty. I just loved the mysterious feeling about the area. I fell in love with the mountains that day.
Aunt Min says
I will never forget the look of wonder and excitement on our middle son’s face as he saw the spectacular view of the Blue Ridge Mountains when we took him to Appalachian State for his first year of college. It was like, “Wow, this is REALLY happening! A new life for me!”
My husband and I grew up in the Adirondacks. We did some hiking as kids. The beautiful view from the top, while enjoying lunch was always the cherry on top.
We just visited Mt. Rainier in Washington this past July 4th weekend. It is absolutely gorgeous from afar and breathtakingly beautiful close by too. My most memorable trip to a mountain though has to be Table Mountain in Cape Town, South Africa. The fauna, flora and the views are just incredible. You can see the city and ocean and at sunrise a magical feeling takes over which is indescribable. I feel very blessed and fortunate to have been able to witness Mother Nature’s beauty at work there.
Denise Bryant says
My head is spinning with all these new stamps and dies! So many beautiful creations!
My most memorable trip to the mountains was the family trip I took when I was about 9. We rented a camper, and headed to Yosemite. Such gorgeous views and fun hiking, swimming, BBQing, and camping! And best of all was the family time we spent together.
We have spent many happy days in the Smokey Mountains. Longing to go again. So beautiful!
Leslie S. says
I don’t have a most memorable one, but I absolutely love going to Mammoth Mountain here in California! It so beautiful!
Brenda Cannova says
My mom was a southern gal and every year when I was a child, we drove through the Great Smoky Mountains to visit family in Tennessee. My aunt and uncle had a valley home with a breathtaking view of those mountains and I still remember waking up in the morning and looking out the window at those gorgeous peaks!
D.Ann C says
What a wishlist overload from this release!
My most memorable trip to the mountains was driving up to Pike’s Peak. Us flatlanders practically left permanent pucker marks on the seats of our car, yet when we got to the top there was a truck that had pulled a trailer up those switchbacks. We were amazed!
my family did a road trip to the rockies when I was 13 years old. we spent three weeks driving and exploring and loving every minute of it.
Becky Green says
HA! HA! HA! My most MEMORABLE trip to the mountains was when we MOVED TO THE MOUNTAINS! We decided to move to the mountains when my hubby retired & we are STILL HERE! I am a city girl removed to the mountains & I LOVE IT HERE! I had to get used to the QUIET!!! AND the wild animals! I still can’t get over that one. LOL I LOVE to see the animals right up near our cabin—coyotes, deer of all sizes, even elk! Oh, & don’t forget the ones I haven’t seen…. the BEAR & the Mountain Lions! Sometimes it isn’t that quiet out there with all of the animal noises!!! My husband took the dog out one night for her last walk & he said it sounded like “Jurassic Park” out there! 😉 The peace & quiet is what draws us to the mountains. A few animal noises is quite tolerable when you get to enjoy the vast beauty & peace & quiet! 😉
betty lou says
Love the mountains! We’ve had many family trips to the mountains for skiing with so many great memories! Watching my sons ski for the first time, sliding on my bottom all the way down a black, watching my sister-in-law stop the ski lift by not skiing off at the right time…such fun, precious memories. Driving the Iron Mountain Road to see Mount Rushmore is one of my favorite memories, also! Oh, and driving through the Needles!
I so want to go to the Canadian Rockies, I hear its a beautiful trip!
Jen Carter says
My most memorable mountain trip was my honeymoon to Colorado Springs. It was a beautiful place to celebrate the beginning of our new lives together. I think of that week often.
Deborah Rosenow says
Girl Scout camp in the grand Teton National park. Swam in a hot spring heated pool. Horse backed at the base of the Tetons. Absolutely amazing summer.
Jessica Monte says
I have never been to any mountains. Only the beach. I gave always want to go somewhere with both the mountains and the beach in the same area. Maybe someday. I am so loving this release.
It would have to be the Alps when I was 5…I remember thinking we were above the clouds and that was magical! Beautiful scenery and awe inspiring views.
Tammy W says
Can’t say I’ve been to any mountains that I can think of unless Space Mountain in Disneyland counts?? lol
Amy Vitriani says
About 15 years ago my sister visited me in Seattle and we went snow tubing in the mountains. We had so much fun! It was like being a kid for a day all over again ? Fantastic release excited to get some goodies!!
I am enjoying reading about everyone’s mountain adventures! I don’t have one in particular that stands out, I just know that at least every three years I need my “mountain fix,” living in a rather flat countryside, so we go to the Rockies or the Porcupines or somewhere to see hills.
Brenda Kuder says
I live in NH and my husband and I went up Mt. Washington on the cog railway. It was quite a trip. About an hour to get up and then it was very windy and cold in July but a fabulous view. Then it takes just as long to get down.
Arianna Barbara says
My most memorable trip to the mountains was 2 years ago. I spent my first Xmas to the mountain, in the beautiful Italian region of Trentino Alto Adige. It was amazing!!! I loved skiing and drinking got chocolate near the fireplace while outside it was snowing!!!
Anita in France says
I loved the view from the top of Mont Blanc … such fantastic snow covered vistas of France, Italy and Switzerland … gaspingly awesome! Anita 🙂
Chris L says
Anywhere in Utah–Bryce and Zion are just beautiful!
Pauline T. says
Going to the Canadian Rockies for our honeymoon and staying in a heritage cabin in Jasper. Seeing lakes, glaciers, rivers, and visiting hot pools. The Icefields Parkway is beautiful.
Pat Ackley says
Our first ski trip out west was definitely the most memorable. We skied at Squaw Valley and Heavenly Valley and it was beautiful. I had never seen mountains like that and they made a lasting impression.
Kathryn A says
My most memorable trip to the mountains were when we went camping. I can still remember the scent of hot pine trees, canvas tents and fresh, cool night air!
Tiffany R. says
When I was a kid, we lived in Germany. My Girl Scout troop spent the week in Garmisch and we took the cable car up to the top of the Zugspitze. The tallest mountain in Germany. It was beautiful and awe inspiring. I’ll never forget how I felt being up there.
In college I took a trip to the Colorado mountains for a camping trip. We camped by a lake that was just beautiful!
I have skied in the mountains in Vermont, Massachusetts and New York but it was a hike on Mount Baker that I have incredible food memories of. My sister and I and our 3 kids went in the summer and hiked to the snow line. Snow in the summer-whoknew! It was breathtaking.
Karen B. says
I have lived near the mountains in Utah and visited them often. Beautiful canyons, pretty trees, and a rushing stream fill my memories. Now I am in CA and can visit Big Bear, etc. The mountains are a nice peaceful place to visit. 🙂
Amy Cooley says
My husband and I had our honeymoon in Gatlinburg, TN. The mountains are very beautiful there.
Laura Holt says
I have only seen “minor” mts., but having a real fear of heights, I would like to SEE [but not drive up!] higher mts. We do have lots of big “hills” here in PA.!
Sue in Grapevine says
My most memorable mountain trip was in the Austrian Alps in the 90s. We went on “the Sound of Music” tour to visit a bunch of the locations from the movie.
Suzi Fohringer says
Nearly 60 yrs ago, my parents took us through the Smoky Mtns. and we had some of the best smoky BBQ I ever had. We stopped at a place called Cherokee Village. My little sister and I bought “Authentic Indian Beaded Necklaces” and an “Authentic Indian Peace Pipe.” Years later my mother told us that there were tiny gold stickers on them that said “made in Japan”. I still have both of those items.
Visiting the Canadian Rockies is something we do almost every year. One year we had problems with a van and had our son (very young back then) and our dog with us. We ended up having to abandon our vehicle due to the extreme cost of having it towed to the nearest town and rent a tiny car to get us all home. My son had to lie down flat so that he could fit. There was a convention going on and that was the only car we could get. I still love the mountains but that trip I will never forget!
I’ve been going to the mountains my whole life. How to pick a single memorable trip is impossible, so many come to mind.
Marty M says
For my 30th Birthday I took a trip to LA with my Aunt, we are only 10 months apart in age.
We stayed at My Uncle’s house in the Valley. He took us up to his Cabin at Big Bear Lake in the Mountains for a weekend. There we explored many beautiful places including old abandoned Mines.
The drive up the Mountain was breathtaking and I will never forget the beauty of it all. I have a couple of watercolors I did while there that capture that wonderful trip.
Shirley Robelotto says
I remember picnics in the Blue Ridge Mountains on Sundays after church as a child. My mom always had delicious fried chicken and all the fixings. Dad would always find a picnic table close to a creek where my brother, sister and I could play.
Jo Reynolds says
I moved from a tropical region in Australia to the Snowy Mountains which experiences four seasons with snow falling in winter. The mountain scenery was so different to what we were used to, and simply breathtaking! We moved again after 3 years there, and I do miss the majestic views.
In June we visited Holy Hill, a smallish mountain in Wisconsin near the course for the 2017 US Open. The view was amazing! At the top is a basilica dedicated to Mary….so beautiful.
Connie Myers says
I live just outside Washington, DC so I LOVE to make regular trips to Shenandoah National Park. Whether camping in a spot overlooking the valley, enjoying the fall foliage or the waterfall views, it’s the best!
Natalie Winterstein says
My most memorable trip to the mountains was going to Yellowstone as child! We had so much and I would love to go back someday! My hubby and I are traveling to Seattle next month and can’t wait see mountains while there! 🙂
Melanie P says
My grandparents lived in-the Catskill Mountains of New York. we visited very summer for several weeks. I always loved all of the lush greenery and gorgeous views. In the winter the snow covered peaks were stunning. Many happy days were spent sledding. Picture prefect memories!
Sharon W says
I am actually heading to beautiful Lake Tahoe, in the Sierras, next weekend for our annual women’s retreat with ladies from my church. I love the drive, from the foothills, up the mountains and then the beautiful lake! Every view is gorgeous.!
Monika Davis says
Hmm… I don’t think I have any memories on the mountain… I know we have driven around some and there were some mountain roads… on one of our cruises we stopped at a Caribbean island (can’t remember which) and we took a tour on a bus… they had some really skinny dirt roads on the mountain… beautiful view! In Hungary we have often go through the mountain on a winding road… it’s really peaceful and quiet!
We just visited the Grand Tetons, and coming from the Midwest, I was awestruck. Although we took a plane ride over the mountains, my favorite view was from the ground with the Tetons reflecting in still waters framed by giant pines. Beautiful!
Mary M says
I liked hiking in Smokey Mountains National park.
Laraine Randall says
Great release! I have never been to the mountains. On my bucket list I would like to go see the rocky mountains! I have seen pictures & would love to see thems.
I live close to the mountains and I love when the sun is shining but there’s still a little snow on the mountain tops.
Pat Whitley says
2 of my girlfriends and I went on a roughing it trip to the Rockies. We borrowed a pop-up pickup camper from one gals parents. 4 nights of roughing it was about all this gal could handle, but we laughed and giggled so much. Even the night we had to use the down sleeping bags in July!
Susan G says
This goes back quite a bit, but when I was about 26, I was on a family motor home trip “out West”. I have lived in Ohio my entire life…had never been further west than Michigan. I thought I had seen some “mountains” in PA and NY. What a revelation that trip was. We saw the Rockies, Tetons, the Olympics, Yellowstone, Glacier park. I cannot tell you what a thrill it was, when in the visitor area on top Mt Rainier, I realized it was not just fog, but we were standing in a CLOUD as it drifted by!!! There is absolutely nothing in my experience that confirms the fact of God than the birth of a child, and standing on the upper portions of Wolf Creek Pass in Colorado. The majesty of His creation is almost transforming. (love your new mountain sets) If you’ve never been to the mountains, make a genuine effort to go…you won’t regret it.
Colleen F says
We went to the mountains with my in laws one year, years ago when the girls were 8 And 10. We played in the snow, we ice skated and we even all got on skis… so fun and such wonderful memories of sharing the time with the grandparents.
Val P says
We went to a wedding in Estes Park Colorado. The town and mountains were so beautiful! We took the time one day to travel through the Rocky Mountain State Park. So lovely to view coming from the state of IL where there are few hills even!
As a kid I can remember driving along the Skyline Drive and seeing mile after mile of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Very impressive! Now I’d like to see some of the mountains on the west coast.
My most memorable trip to mountains was to Leh, India. Nestled between Pakistan and China, the Tibetan influence, the majestic foothills of the Himalayas stole my heart and I have since returned 3 times!
Lauren Yoder says
I’m headed to Banff & Jasper National Parks in Canada in 2 weeks! I’ve been dreaming of going there!
Cindy Hanson says
As a child and teen, I went to Mammoth Mountain to ski with my family every winter. I always wanted to see those gorgeous mountains in the summer, so this year, we are going. Can’t wait!
Angela Lemmons says
I’ve lived an hour from the Great Smokey Mountains my entire life and they are amazing but I was in awe of the red sandstone mountains we saw in Sedona several years ago!! Absolutely majestic!!
Tracy Steinbach says
I don’t have the means to travel so my dream vacation would be to go to Montana rent a cabin some where hidden away and spend my time taking pictures and enjoying the beauty of the mountains and animals… Then I also love to go to Colorado and rather then skiing go sledding down one of those be runs. LOL
My greatest memories as a child was church camp in the mountains. Those mountain experiences changed my life. So grateful!
Donna Coffeen says
My first camping trip ever was with my husband’s family in the mountains. The most memorable part was when I got between a mama bear and her babies accidentally. Obviously, everything turned out ok, but for a non-outdoors girl it was quite an experience.
My husband and I enjoy spending time in Estes Park, Colorado, because of the majestic beauty of the mountains.
Tanja S. says
We have just been to Colorado and Arizona and we are from Australia. I loved the gorgeous Rocky mountains, always providing a beautiful backdrop to my photos. We also went up to Zapata Falls which was fun! What a fantastic trip.
Penny J says
My husband and I, along with another couple, camped four months at Panguitch Lake in Utah. It was a glorious summer! We traveled all the back roads through the forests. We traveled all across the south east portion of the state on day trips hitting all the National Parks as we went. Did tons of fishing and met lots of interesting people. That is where we were when 9/11 happened and we were in such disbelief. We were just shocked that such a tragic event could happen on US soil. I love the mountains, so peaceful!
Becky P. says
My most memorable trip to the mountains was in Lake Tahoe. Walking on the beach everyday with the Sierra as your backdrop. Absolutely beautiful. I have never felt so relaxed in my life.
Victoria Nelson says
My most memorable trip to the mountains was three years ago, when I took my first ski lessons in Colorado. Learning to ski as an adult was not as easy as I had hoped it would be, but I survived! It’s now the activity I enjoy the most in the winter months (next to stamping!).
Eileen L. says
My most memorable trip was with my sister visiting her friend
outside of Kentucky. What beauty, it was breathtaking. I took many pictures trying to capture the beauty. Next trip I brought a video camera, much better.
Donna K says
Many years ago I went to the Black Hills with my sister and her husband. It was so beautiful and big and peaceful. Unfortunately they had had fog for a couple days and I was afraid we wouldn’t see the faces. The weather cleared the next day and it was just a wonderful experience.
The mountains in the Scottish Highlands have stolen my heart. I’ll be returning to Glen Coe one day soon.
Lisa K says
Every summer we would spend a few weeks in the White Mountains. They were such fun family vacations. Nothing to do but enjoy nature. The was a Forest Ranger that would give nature walks where you would learn what was poisonous, edible plants, and even how to make a whistle out of a willow branch. Oh…such good times and fabulous memories. I wish I could go back.
When are children were younger for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day we picked somewhere new to hike. Now keep in mind we live in Colorado. One year on Mother’s Day we headed to our hiking spot..it started to snow a little..we started the hike and found ourselves in thigh high deep snow! Our kids had to dig me out and our dog literally was leaping for joy!
Once we went with my whole extended family (think 13 aunts and uncles and lots of kids lol!)and we stayed in a cabin in the mountains. We had so much fun seeing an outdoor Indian show and shopping and just being together!
Marlee S. says
My family and I have spent a lot of time camping in the mountains. We live in Colorado where there are a lot of mountains. I have lots of good memories from these trips!
Rachael Burdick says
I drive through the mountains to get to various destinations, but never spend much time actually in the mountains. I love the view of Mount Hood from my neighborhood, all covered with snow, especially at sunset. I’ve been wanting to visit Crater Lake for many years, a deep lake in the crater of a mountain top. Hopefully I’ll get to take that trip sometime soon.
I have only been to the Grand Canyon once but would love to return there. It was the most amazing thing I have ever seen – I would also love to see the grand Tetons – I was able to see them from a very long distance when I was on a business trip but would love to be able to see them up close!
Cynthia L Clark says
The Cog railway trip that takes you to the top of Pike’s Peak in Colorado is so spectacular and inspiring. No wonder the author of “America the Beautiful” was inspired to pen the song. If you go be-sure to try the donuts in the shop at the top!
Cele Schaffer says
I would love to go out west to see the Rocky Mountains. I live in Tennessee where the Smokey Mountains are beautiful with all the trees and greenery. I can not imagine the vastness of the Rocky Mountains which look so different. Maybe my husband and I will get there in retirement!
MS Barb says
I lived in Boulder, Colorado for two years (mid 70’s) & one 4th of July I crossed the Continental Divide (1st & only time) into Grand Lake & Granby—I bought a small vase, turquoise w/ an Native American design on it–still have it, and still love it! 🙂
Angela Person says
My husband proposed in the mountains at Christmastime at a family friend’s house. Truly one of my most memorable mountain memories.
Kathy Mc says
We look at the Cascade Foothills everyday from our home and when out on the lake we get breath-taking views of Mt. Rainier. Hiking amongst the wildflowers is so picturesque and refreshing. However, we’ve also enjoyed a family trip (siblings) to the Smoky Mountains. My DH and I have also enjoyed the Sierra Nevadas and Rocky Mountains. Nothing is more beautiful than majestic mountains in my opinion.
Mandy Gauvin says
We spent a long weekend in the Sierras at Lake Tahoe celebrating my mom and dad’s fiftieth anniversary. Wonderful memories. That Psalm was my mom’s favorite Bible verse.
I am so fortunate to live in the Appalachians. Of course they aren’t as high or as majestic as the Rockies but I love them. I grew up in a valley and looking up at tree-covered hills will always mean “home” to me. Now I live on top of a ridge and the beauty of my surroundings, the view of patchwork fields amidst forest is breathtaking, especially in Autumn. So every day is a trip to the mountains for me and I am so grateful for my good fortune.
I think my favorite is Grandfather Mountain in my home state of NC. Such beautiful views from it’s peak amongst the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. When you see the views you can understand why they are called the Blue Ridge. Lovely!
I haven’t been to the mountains much but I think it would be a worthwhile trip.
Lisa Smith says
I live in Colorado I see the mountains everyday. I love love them. My husband and I enjoy driving thru the mountains and hiking in the summer in them. The smell, the rushing streams, the pine trees, the beauty is simply amazing and this might sound silly but I still feel like a child when you drive thru the tunnels, my dad always honked the horn when we went thru them when I was little and I still want to today even though I’m 57.
Megan Carroll says
Megan Carroll says
We are lucky to live an hour from Banff some of the most beautiful mountains in the world….we love to go there!!
We drove up this mountain in HI to see the most beautiful sunrise and we were like above the clouds.
Tammie Koehnen says
The most memorable trip to the mountains was two years ago when we took a family trip to the Rocky Mountains for our daughters wedding in Estes Park. The backdrop of the mountains was breathtaking and the ceremony I will never forget. It was such a special memory I will never forget!
I haven’t really gone up the mountain much but wouldn’t mind to try a new adventure some day.
Pat from sd says
We don’t have easy access to the mountains, but I could imagine how beautiful it would be.
Helen F. says
I have cherished memories of a trip to Sicily and my husband driving up the many mountains there! My DH always rented a car when we traveled, which horrified me because of the narrow roadways in European countries, but driving up MT Etna had to be one of our most amazing adventures!
Linda S. says
My most recent trip to Mt. Rainier in Washington state was on June 30 to congratulate my son. He accomplished the task of summit-ting 14,000 feet to the top of Mt. Rainier, one of his lifetime goals. We were so proud of him.
Susan W. says
I used to go backpacking in my younger days. One trip that sticks in my mind is when we went to Tahoe’s Desolation Wildnerness and we woke up to snow in the morning. It was absolutely gorgeous! Everything centers around meals when you go backpacking. We greatly anticipated having our coffee and pancakes that morning tho things take awhile to prepare. We were making the first pancake and went to flip it and it landed in the snow. Ugh! We finally did get breakfast made and enjoyed eating it amongst beautiful scenery!
Rosemary D says
Living in Western Washington I am surrounded by mountains (the Cascade range to the east and the Olympics to the west). But one of my most memorable trips to the mountains occurred in 2015 when my boys and I went to Angels Camp, CA. We spent one day at Calaveras Big Trees State Park. The park has two groves of giant Sequoia trees and we wandered through one of them. It was amazing! Another day we headed to Yosemite and that was even more amazing!
karen h says
I grew up in Virginia and thought I knew what a mountain was until I visited Telluride CO – the sheer size of the mountains was awesome!
A few years back while in Italy,our Italian friends took us to the island of Elba.We drove up the winding roads to the top(very high)& much to my surprise was the most picturesque little village.Just like a movie set.It looked down to water all around from the highest peeks.So stunning & magical.
I’ve been to the Rocky’s twice and loved it. My daughter is up in Banff as I’m writing this, just finished Glacier. Beautiful area!
Rocky Mountains National Park – such a beautiful drive but in the span of two hours had to go from shorts and t-shirt to jeans, boots and jacket!
Dianne S. says
The camping trip on the Olympic Mountains in Washington state was a memorable one. Never forget the sea of mountains all around us when we finally reached a peak. We hiked up for six hours carrying heavy backpacks for a three day wilderness experience. Saw black bears hiking up who ignored us since they were too busy eating the wild blueberries growing profusely along the mountainside. Hubby stopped off to eat blueberries too, but on a higher ledge. He snored so loudly that first night that campers in the area below us moved their tent in the middle of the night to get some sleep!
Penny P. says
I camped and hiked in the lake district years ago, it was stunningly beautiful!
Mary Parker says
It was one of the 1st times we took a vacation as married family. my huaband was laid off work. My mom lived in WA state. We loaded our son, doberman, and Llaso Apaso in the our pinto and drove from CA.I think we were almost there when I noticed Christmas Trees growing beside the road. I mwde my husband stop so I could dig a small one up and take one with me. My Mom HAD to have a Christmas Tree in her yard! Didnt have a clue what I was doing was illegal. God looks after the sick and fools alike…several people passed as we were getting a tiny 1′ tree but no law enforcement. When we get to my moms house we learned it was illegal and saw she had a forrest on one of her bakcyard acres, with plenty Christmas Trees.
Marianne M says
Honeymoon trip to Italy: hiking up the slopes of Vesuvius, standing on the rim and listening to the hiss and pop of a dormant volcano–Pretty memorable and exciting!
Barbara Schmidt says
I am lucky to live in Colorado Springs, Colorado and am able to see the grandeur of Pikes Peak from my front door! Everyday I can look west and see the beauty of the mountains. Throughout the years, our family has spent lots of time hiking and skiing in the Rockies. A great place to live!!
Mount Rainier in Washington state is MY MOUNTAIN. Even though I live in MI, I travel out to WA every so often to see relatives and, of course, “my mountain.” I have driven up to the visitor center and it was breath-taking the whole trip.
Kathy P says
I grew up in the prairie states so the first time I saw the Rockys in Montana it was magical. What a contrast to what I had been used to. I camped and awoke each morning to such beauty.
My most memorable mountain trip was a trip to Colorado to visit my grandparents who lived there. My grandfather built homes there. We went fishing and also camping. The family had a wonderful time.
Malyssa M. says
I live in Nova Scotia, Canada, so not the most mountains around but we did do a family vacation around the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton and the views were absolutely breath taking so I guess that counts!
I’m more of a beach girl but I’d love to someday see the mountains in Colorado!
Angela TX says
My birthday is three days before my best friend’s. To celebrate our 50th birthdays, we took a road trip through the Great Smoky Mountains and along the Blue Ridge Parkway. We drove almost 800 miles over those three days and stopped at every little overlook and laughed about how our husbands would never do this with us. For a lot of the time it was rainy or cloudy, but I will always remember that trip because of the time I got to spend with her.
Sue McRae says
I love the mountains and scenery in Alberta, Canada especially Lake Louise. It is the picture perfect location with amazing snow capped mountains and a lake that is the prettiest shades of blue and green. Such a magical place!
Peggy C says
We live near the Cascade Mountains in Washington State so I can see Mt Adams and Mt Rainier on a daily basis. But I never take it for granted because every day there is a different view. I do think my most memorable trip was to Mt St. Helens after it erupted in 1980. We are east of the Cascades so we received a lot of ash but to see the devastation around the mountain was truly amazing.
Mary Lou Kemp says
Living in Virginia Beach for many years we on only visited family here in the blue ridge mountains of western Virginia. I have always felt a closeness with the rural life and am a country girl at heart. Now I am so fortunate to be living here with my son’s family and my grandchildren and can’t wait to enjoy the changing of the seasons and gorgeous array of fall colors I only got to see for weekends at a time.
Sharon C says
The mountain stamps and dies bring joy to my heart they are so beautiful!
My husband and I camped in the Rockies for our honeymoon! We have taken our children back on 3 major camping trips so far. Last summer we camped at Yosemite when President Obama was there too! Beautiful landscape to my Illinois-prairie-eyes. Seeing mountains is like water to someone in the desert for someone from flatland.
Deborah Long says
I would love to visit the Rocky mountains.
Jill S says
Our regular vacation spot is a cabin in the mountains of Northeast Pennsylvania. (The Appalachian Trail actually crosses through the property). We have spent many nights days weekends Etc up there with family. Our children especially loved going there for Christmas to get away for some winter when we were living in the Deep South. I think my most memorable trip there was the year our children tried to go sledding in half an inch of snow. Long story short the day ended with a trip to the emergency dentist. Fortunately, our son’s “tooth” has held for 12 years now. What may sound like a disaster is just another memory. Well all be there for Christmas again, if even just for an afternoon
The Grand Tetons National Park in Wyoming was my favorite trip. It was a family vacation, our two sons were young, and I will never forget the tranquility and peace I felt during this trip. When I saw your mountain die, those feelings all came rushing back. What a beautiful place to visit !!!
Sheri Elmont says
I was born and raised in Englewood, CO so the mountains were in my view every day. My dad was from Basalt, a little town between Glenwood Springs and Aspen and we spent 6 weeks of every summer there with my Grandma and other relatives. The Rockies are in my blood. Now I live in Portland, OR and mountains are still around me, just not as high, but every bit as beautiful.
SWR Donna says
I LOVE mountains! Having been raised in the Tropics, they always seemed to beckon with cooler temperatures. Still working on it, but my dream trip will include Austria and the Swiss & Italian Alps!
My husband proposed to me at the top of Independance Pass in the Rocky Mtns, CO. I’d call that memorable!
Cheryl Moch says
Our family has been to Aspin Colorado California and last year we visited Vancouver and Vancouver Island. All mountains are different and beautiful in their own way. After I saw the “Mountain Majesty” die set, I decided I needed this set. I have plans to make cards for my kids and add a little note saying “remember when”. Love this set – great job! Can’t wait to purchase.
Kim Heggins says
I loved going to the mountains with my family as a child…it’s where I learned to fish and every year we go and cut down our Christmas tree, so many wonderful memories with my family.
Niki C. says
I’ve never gone on a ski vacation, and I think that would be so much fun! So maybe a trip to Colatado is in order? I hear that’s some of the best skiing around 🙂
Reva Brightman says
It was 1959 driving to my husband’s Air Force assignment in California that I saw my first mountains. So began my love affair with the Rockies. In 1989 we finally settled in the southern Rockies–At 7500 foot elevation I am still within the trees -the last home in the canyon. I awake to the sounds of so many varieties of birds, turkeys walk thru the property as do the deer and elk. Occasionally I see skunk, bear and one time a coyote. Raccoons are plentiful and the chipmunks are fun to see as they run from the red squirrel. I keep water in several vessels for the wildlife and they seem to bring the little ones year after year. My first year here I literally walked thru the clouds as they rolled in. We will be celebrating our 60th anniversary with a train trip from Vancouver to Banff, British Columbia. Those majestic peaks are above tree line and I am sure in October will be snow capped.
My most memorable trip to the mountains was a weekend getaway in the snow with my pups.
Laurie P. says
On a trip to Italy a few years ago, we followed our GPS up the very steep side of a mountain to reach a small town with a bell factory. The road kept getting more and more narrow till it resembled a goat path more than a road. Fortunately, we found a small clearing to turn around, ignored our GPS and found an ultra modern highway on the other side of the mountain – MUCH easier!
We love the rocky mountains – so beautiful!
Karyn S says
There have been so many it is hard to say, but recently my daughter and I drove up to the top of Pike’s Peak. It was fun and a little scary, and beautiful.
see mary stamp says
We have been blessed to take a few incredible vacations in the past few years to visit some of the unbelievably awesome National Parks our country is blessed to have. Last year we visited Mt. Rainier and Olympic National Park in Washington State. Living in a rather flat portion of the State of IL we were just awestruck by the beauty of these places.
The closest I’ve gotten is our honeymoon to Kauai in 1991…. there’s verdant and gorgeous mountainous terrain in many parts of the island. Just beautiful!
Nancy Ward says
My son just moved to Colorado so I am hoping to visit the Rocky Mountains soon!
Taking my girls to Oregon to see and drive around mountains, really mountains, like nothing they had ever seen before.
This June we met up with family and friends at Grand Lake Colorado and got to see the rubber duck races for Father’s Day.
Lisa Ann McDonald says
I so miss traveling with family through the Catskills mountains as a child. It was something we did often. I remember packing up all the board games for a long 6 hour trip. Some of my most precious memories!
Iris Shubert says
I’ve been the thru the Smokey Mountains. They are beautiful.
Back in 1974, when I was first married, my husband and I moved from TN to NC, where he was stationed in the Marine Corps. While there we made a trip to NY, where we traveled thru the Catskills. My favorite trip was when we came back thru those Smokey hills, to our home in TN. There’s no place like home 🙂
Great release PTI!!!
Jennifer Thompson says
I took a trip 2 years ago to Nepal. I didn’t climb to the top of any mountains, but we hiked to the top of the international Peace Pogada in Pokhara Nepail. We had stunning views of Fishtail Mountain.
Kathy Krug says
I lived in Pennsylvania and nothing was more breathtaking than a trip through the mountains to see the turning of the leaves in the fall. It has been on my bucket list to see them again and this is the . Awesome release and designs from the team.
I have lots of favorite mountains! I’d have to say my top 3 so far are: Climbing Half Dome, visiting Tahoe and the Wasatch Mountains. Such a beautiful world that we have to enjoy!
The Swiss Alps were the most memorable mountains I’ve had the chance to visit. Canyoning with some friends from college in Switzerland was an incredible experience!!!
Rema DeLeeuw says
We used to go camping in the Smokey Mountains when the kids were little. Wonderful memories!
Love the mountains!
Although, our most memorable moment wasn’t necessarily a good one. It was snowy and cold. We were towing a trailer and the water pump blew on top of a remote pass. There was no cell coverage but DH had managed to flag down two drivers. We had a split second to decide if we wanted to go east or west as the cars were each going a different direction. We caught a ride with the driver heading west, who happened to think he was a race car driver. Much of the trip I remember talking myself through car sickness thinking “don’t get sick in this generous man’s car…” LOL! When we got down to cell service and called a tow truck (two actually) and waited a stressful ~10 hours until we knew that the truck and trailer had safely been towed off the mountain. Oh, and the bill, well let’s just say I could have bought more than 100 stamp sets with the money the bill cost! :$
It was a stressful moment at the time, but we’ll never forget that day!!
i am a prairie girl so the first time I saw the Rocky mountains as a young teen I was amazed. We spent a few nights at the Banff resort. So awesome!! Since then I have travelled through mountains often. They still are really breathtaking every time.
Kelly Schirmer says
I am not a mountain kind of girl (when it comes to hiking or skiing!), but I visited Whiteface Mountain in Lake Placid and sat in their beautiful lodge with a friend, sipping wine while our husbands went skiing! This same friend and I went to Killington, Vermont…and went cross-country skiing while the rest of the group hit the big mountains :)!
My most memorable moment was my 2nd Honeymoon to Maui, Hawaii. They have the most beautiful scenery and I can’t wait to go back.
Natalie s says
I’m currently living that experience right now in Switzerland! Five beautiful days with my mom and daughter. Mountains, mountains, and more mountains! Too bad we have to leave.
Becky M says
We live in Colorado and I NEVER take the mountain views for granted. They are different and breathtaking every single day! But if you have ever seen the Alps – they could probably eat the Rocky Mountains for breakfast!! LOL!
I love flying over the mountain ranges and seeing their snow capped peaks. One of the things I often think about is the pioneers traveling west in their covered wagons. They would reach a high mountain, and struggle to get their wagons over or around it, only to find another mountain ahead of them that has to be conquered, and then another mountain… and another. What endurance they had to have had.
I have the fondest memories growing up, of our summer vacations to Northern California to the Mount Shasta area. We would go trout fishing and it always amazed me in the heat of summer that we looked up at the most beautiful mountain with snow still on it. My dad was a great fisherman and I am so grateful for the memories of those fun times fishing with him.
The most fun trip was definitely when we went donkey-hiking in the Harz region in Germany. Two donkeys carrying our lunchpacks and everything else ecxept us. The kids didn’t even notice how far they walked that day.
Catherine Milne says
My brother-in-law and his wife used to have a cabin in Lake Arrowhead. We would go up there for holidays and cook a bunch of food, work puzzles, read, hike, stuff like that. I have lots of fond memories of that place.
Steffi H. says
I´m more a beachy girl than a mountain one, but the most memorable mountain trip was when I visited Mount St. Helens. Very impressive to see what happens to the environment after a vulcanic eruption.
Jan Pufall says
I’ve been fortunate enough to go to the Rockies, Mt. Washington, the White Mtns., the Smokey Mtns., and more. What I am looking forward to is Denali, next Summer. The majesty and beauty are such a draw.
Your post is great!
Rebecca Ednie says
I hiked up a mountain in Washington when I was a kid visiting relatives in BC. There was snow on the ground in July! We kids thought that was fascinating. When we climbed higher we saw people in shorts skiing down the mountain! One of my favourite memories.
Susan in AK says
I am fortunate to live in the mountains in Alaska and I enjoy them each and every day.
karen b says
I live in the mountains of central Pa and have been lucky to see mountains all over the US. My favorite to date was going to the top of Mauna Kea on the Big Island in Hawaii. It was wonderful to travel up from a tropical paradise to a barren land of cinder cones and observatories. There was snow in the shadows and the view out over the island was stunning! My dream is to go back one day and photograph the milky way!
I live in the Pacific Northwest and we are definitely blessed with beautiful mountain scenery! I went on a hike one time to a place called Goat Lake. A gorgeous mountain lake, not sure if that peak had a name or not. Loved the view. Mosquitoes, yellow jackets and horse flies…not so much!
Linda E (uncbballfan) says
I am so very lucky to live near the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Smoky Mountains that I couldn’t possibly name a favorite time I’ve had. Picnics, Sunday afternoon drives, camping, hiking. Most of the best memories of my entire life are tied to these mountains.
I live in the mountains and I love it here! My dream would be seeing the mountains out West. Snow capped mountains in summer time! I’d love to see that!!!
Donna Oates says
Anywhere mountains are I wanna go. We just recently went to the BGEA Cove for a weekend seminar near Asheville, NC. An awesome place to go for a spiritual renewal!
Leanne S says
I have climbed hills. Not a mountain yet. I hope I will have the opportunity before I grow old & grey.
Cynthia Baldwin says
My most memorable trip to the mountains was the first time I went skiing, in Colorado. I went with my boyfriend/now-husband, who could ski already and was so patient with me, even though I got so frustrated. It was on a chairlift that he talked about – you know, we could take our kids on ski vacations. <3 Yup, good memories of a great time in the mountains.
Holly Saveur says
In Spain..the Costa Del Sol….gorgeous place..all the wildlife and flowers in may…stunning!
most people only see the beach when they visit..
Emma Sleppy says
Never been to the mountains, but I did see some terrific volcanes and mountains in Hawaii’s beautiful scenery! GReat release, as always!!!
I have a life long fantasy of living in a cozy little log cabin, nestled in the Rockies, on the outskirts of some tiny Norman Rockwell town. When the snow is deep, the hours tick away as I obsess over the finest details of my latest needlework project. No sound to disturb the dance between my work, and me, except the crackling of the warm fire and the occasional whinny from my beloved draft mare in the barn. My devoted farm hand hooks her up to my little open-air sleigh. The roads are impassible by auto, and supplies are needed, so my faithful helper and horse drive me to town and wait, while I make the rounds in the little shops. He helps me load my tasty treats and whatnot’s aboard my sturdy antique gem. We head back home through the crispness with handmade afghans across our laps to keep us toasty.
… ahh to dream
**slap** now back to reality
Bonnie T. says
When I was ten years old my family drove from Georgia to Iowa to pick up my grandparents. We went on a mountain rode trip through South Dakota and Colorado that I will never forget. My grandparents have been gone 20 plus years and my dad passed away last summer. Sweet memories!
I have lovely memories of hiking with my Dad in the Adirondacks, but my most memorable mountain memory is climbing Whiteface in NH with my family and my cousins. I was confident I could make it up a bit of a rock wall along the trail, and although it was really beyond me, I was encouraged to attempt it. To my embarrassment, I had to be rescued by one of my cousins! But it always stuck with me that it’s important to encourage people to do what they want to do, even if it may be a bit beyond them, and then be kind and supportive when they fail, as my cousins were.
Betty Sue says
Yosimiti stands out as my husband and I went this spring for our 30th anniversary! It was amazing!!
Vicki Smith says
My husband and I lived at the foot of the San Bernardino mountains and we would drive up to Big Bear Lake where our friends had a small cabin. We would ride our bikes. We formed a club of 3 couples and had T-shirts made saying Been There Done That. We also drove to Lake Arrowhead to enjoy great food and lots of shopping. Great memories and lots of fun!
Melissa S. says
A trip to Cade’s Cove in TN was my favorite mountain getaway when I was growing up. However, drives along the Blue Ridge Parkway with my husband while we were first dating rank up there too. And then my trip to Colorado and seeing the Rockies was pretty spectacular.
Donna Gourley says
I dream of going out West sometime where the BIG mountains are. I think it would just be beautiful. I wouldn’t want to be stranded there in a lot of snow though! I’ve never been skiing and really don’t have any inclination to go at this stage of my life…but I would love to sight see out there.
Gina Eggebrecht says
I went to the White Mountains with my parents, my sister and oldest nephew when my parents lived in New Hampshire. Seeing the Old Man of the Mountain was the coolest thing! It is a beautiful area and I would love to go back.
Kirsty Vittetoe says
I would say Aspen, we went up to maroon bell, I love it the first time and actually return for 2 more, love the colorado mountains, they are amazing!
I love the mountains. Have lived by them all my life. In Costa Rica favorite mountain memory was visiting a the volcanos, one of which is still active and spews lava daily. Here at home, we have skied for years and one of my favorite memories was stopping on a run in one of the the back bowls when it was snowing and it was so quiet you could hear the snow falling!
Lived in Colorado for 3 years too many stories to shears but favors one was any time we visited Rocky Mountain national park!
larissa heskett says
We went to the Mountains over Memorial Day Weekend and it was BEAUTIFUL!! We went Fishing and Skiing and went hiking!! I LOVE the outdoors!! THANKS for the chance to WIN and have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!!
Elizabeth Garcia says
Ina few weeks we are going to Colorado on vacation and the m looking forward to seeing the mountains there.
Sharon D. says
Any trip to the mountains is awe inspiring, but Twice I had the privilege of joining my husband on a work trip to Jackson Hole, WY. We drove through the Tetons & spent some time there as well as Yellowstone. One of my top favorite destinations! I’d go again in a heartbeat!
Maureen P says
We are fortunate enough to be surrounded by beautiful mountains here in BC. However, I would love to visit the Alps one day 🙂
My personal favorite was the mountains in Switzerland. I would absolutely love to return!
Jill Norwood says
I live surrounded by the Olympic and Cascade mountains here in the Pacific Northwest. My favorite trips to the mountains include stops at Deception Falls or Snoqualmie Falls. I love wintertime stays at local cabins with plenty of time to play in the snow! I am so very blessed to live so close to so much natural beauty! I get to enjoy it often!
Deb Hudson says
I have always been drawn to Mt. Shasta in Calif. I have driven by it east, west, north and south and it it beautiful from every direction. Once, I got to stay at its base in the early winter for a silent retreat. That experience made the mountain even more beautiful and meaningful. We’re headed that way this August on our way to the total eclipse!
Diana F says
The mountain destination of my dreams would be Alaska. I would love to see the beautiful mountain ranges in Alaska. Thanks to all for sharing their lovely creations.
Carrie T says
I would love to see the Rockies!
Linda M says
Just last month, on a trip to Seattle to visit my son, we drove to a small logging town and hiked up the glorious mountain to view the waterfall from the top. The vegetation was so full of vivid colors. The ferns were such an intense green color I had to touch them to make sure they were real. Nothing like our ferns here in the Midwest. The view was spectacular but spending time with my son was the best.
Teri W says
The best mountain I visited was Macchu Picchu in Peru. Awe inspiring and just a great spiritual place here on earth! I’d love to go back!
super stick chick says
I lived in Colorado as a young kid. I still remember driving to the top of Pikes Peek and seeing the view. It was amazing.
My favorite memory is feom snowboarding in the Alpes as a teenager where we saw the most amazing sunset over the high snowy mountains! ???
Dawn M. says
Mountains are in my heart and soul. My Dad was from Colorado so we made many trips back to the Rockies, Grand Lake, and Estes Park. We also spent many Summer and Winter days at Lake Tahoe, so beautiful. Skiing in the Winter and at the beach in the Summer, so much fun there! My husband and I also lived in Washington State near the top of a mountain surrounded by apple and cherry orchards. Snowy Winters were beautiful. We could see the valley and river below. I love the mountains!
Umama Rizvi says
We took a family trip to Naran Kaghan, places high up in the north in Pakistan when
I was a kid and we had a great time. Even saw the highest lake in the world. It’s beautiful!
Kathy J in Ellicott City says
I love the mountains, my most memorable was when I worked one summer in Wyoming and got to go to Yellowstone National Park.
Laura C says
The Cascade Mountains are the most beautiful with tons of hiking and Mt. Rainier is so majestic. I love a good, sunny day in Seattle when you can see it and marvel at how gorgeous it is!
Joyce M. says
I love the Sierra Mountains. I have skied all over them, probably at every single ski resort over the years.
My most memorable trip to the mountains was on a date with my now husband. He made a picnic lunch of fried chicken and we went hiking and ate good food. It was a really nice day!
Sandy redman says
I am fortunate to live very close to mountains and see them every day. The best thing I did and the thing that always brings peaceful thoughts and feelings, would be the drive to a secluded area and then the hikes into the trees, finding a stream and just sitting on the rocks, listening to the sounds of nature and even the quiet. We would open up the picnic and spend hours each time.
We moved to a Blue Ridge Mountains area just over a year ago and I will always remember our hike up to McAfee Knob in SW Virginia, just breathtaking. I remember thinking “yeah, this was a good move for me.” So you can guess which of this new July awesomeness is at the top of my list – the Mountain Majesty stamps and dies.
Stacy Simpson says
It has to be driving to the top of Pikes Peak. We had our 2 boys with us. My husband is a very cautious driver but we were all scared to death. I tried to act brave and stayed calm during the drive up. When we got to the top; I cried, like a baby. And then I was fine. I guess I just had to release all the nervous energy! LOL! We all got a good laugh at how I cried at the top.
It is an incredible view from the top!
My husband and I have been blessed to take a few trips to different mountains. My favorite has to be the sight of Mt. McKinley. Denali National Park is awe inspiring. One of my favorite vacations.
My father-in-law bought a “cabin” in the mountains of Georgia to use for family get-togethers and a vacation rental. When we got there, the “cabin” was a brand new 3-story brick house that slept 20 people, had a swimming pool and hot tub, etc. It sat on about an acre that had been landscaped by his best friend, who just happened to be a golf course designer. It most definitely wasn’t what we were expecting, but over the years we had lots of nice family times there. He got rid of it not long before he died, and I hope the new owners are really enjoying it. I’m really looking forward to using Betsy’s new mountain stamps and dies. Thanks for the chance to win a gift certificate!
Elise Smith says
I’ve really enjoyed the previews of this release! So many fun summer sets 🙂 My family and I have taken a few trips to the Smoky Mountains. It’s a beautiful place!
I still remember the breathtaking views of mountains on a trip through Italy. Simply spectacular!
Definitely the time we vacationed in Colorado…going over the Continental Divide, Pike’s Peak and visiting the Garden of the Gods.
Sue LD says
The mountains I like are in West Virginia where I was born and my family is from. Growing up I always looked forward to visiting my grandmother on her farm in the mountains.
Jennifer Bishop says
We recently returned from a mountain getaway in Colorado. The three story cabin we rented had a beautiful office area with gorgeous views off of the third story Master’s Suite. Due to Lupus, I am allergic to UV rays and cannot enjoy the outdoors. So, when my family went off on mountain excursions, I stayed behind and crafted. It was one of the most amazing trips ever!
Deborah S says
During a visit to my son in CA we went to Muir Woods, an awesome Redwood forest. Hiking up the mountains there was spectacular.
Marilyn in Michigan says
Looking at pictures is good enough for me. I am a white knuckle traveler through the mountains. Afraid of being up so high.
Julie C says
Great release! We go to the Poconos every summer with family, but my favorite mountain trip so far was Rocky Mountain National Park last December. We drove up to Bear Lake through crazy snow and our twins thought it was incredible!
April Z. says
I can’t pick just one trip to the mountains. I lived near Rocky Mountain National Park for several years and enjoyed hiking in the mountains every chance I got.
Priscilla from CA says
Every once in a while, I consider visiting Machu Picchu. Then I come to my senses and think, “are you out of your mind, girl?”
My best memory was visiting and playing at Arches National Park prior to it becoming a National Park.
We just recently went to California (our first time out there from the east coast) and we got to see some of beautiful Yosemite National Park. It was in the spring and the mountains and water falls were all amazing!
Anne-Marie Tribbett says
My most memorable trip to the mountains was when we went to Montana in 2013 and went through Grand Teton National Park. Those mountains are so majestic and awe inspiring! It was the last trip we were able to take with my father before he passed away and we have so many wonderful and beautiful memories. And all the bald Eagles were just icing on the cake!
Lisa G. says
I live outside of Pittsburgh and even though we don’t have mountains per say we do have some amazing rolling hills. I do have a friend who lives in Colorado that I will have to go see.
Kathy McDonald says
I live in Seattle, where I see Mount Rainier daily. It’s a stunning reminder of the glory of nature!
One summer friends and I got in their van and drove through the Appalachian Mountains. It was beautiful and we also saw a different life style then we were accustom to in the city.
Betty N says
I’ve been to Jasper National Park in the Canadian Rockies a few times- truly breathtaking! Thank you for the chance to win!
Claire A says
I worked in Whistler for 5 months after I graduated – over 20 years ago now! It was stunning to wake up surrounded by those mountains. I went back 3 years ago and the only thing I recognised in Whistler Village was the door to the local pizza shop!
I’m dreaming of the French Alps….
Janet W says
I’m fortunate to live in the Sierra foothills in northern CA, where the mountains are just a short drive away. I love being on the beach at Lake Tahoe and seeing snow on the mountains right across the lake! There are just so many mountains I would love to visit some day!
Kim Badelt says
That would have to be to the Zugspitze in southern Germany. It took my husband an hour to convince me to get on the gondola cars that would take us to the top. I’m just a little afraid of heights. The view from the top was worth conquering the fear though!
Kathy V says
We have traveled to Washington state several time. We loved traveling through the Rocky Mountains. We have been to Mt. Baker. We love to travel back home through the Cascades. I can’t tell you which of them I love the most. Mountains just put me in awe! I never tire of seeing them.
Suzanne Mooney says
The closest I have actually been to any mountains was when we flew by plane to Rome and we flew over the Alps. They were amazing. The Rockies are on my bucket list together with Denali. One day 🙂
I live in a mountain resort town, and every day I wake up thankful for the beauty and serenity that surrounds me.
We are fortunate to have family living in Park City, Utah and the beautiful Wasatch Mountains. Many days have been spent hiking, skiing and snowmobiling. Our favorites are Deer Valley, Snowbird, The Canyons and Daniel’s Summit.
Cheryl B. says
Not really a mountain kind of girl. I do much better at sea level!
Does the Big Rock Candy Mountain count? LOL
Marilou S. says
A Chaplain while I was in the Army would have us look down the Hudson Valley in NY and quote Psalm 121…it was the perfect setting for that Bible verse…so you know I love that stamp!
Years ago, I made my first backpacking trip up Mt. Marcy, the highest peak in the Adirondacks. Although my husband helped me choose hiking boots, neither of us realized that a seam at the heel had been hidden by a thin layer of leather. Within the first mile, I had blisters, but I hiked on. Getting to the top was my proudest accomplishment, and just the first of many hiking experiences.
We took a family trip with the five of us to the Bitterroot Mountains. It was the year our oldest daughter graduated from high school. It is an enduring memory of our years as a nuclear family. (Now they are married with children.) Happy times!
Judie Attard says
Amazing release as usual! I’ve never been to the mountains but I would love to go skiing in the Alps!
Sharon D says
I love the mountains! We’ve been to the Alps, the Rockies, and now we are blessed to live where we can see mountains every day–the Olympics to the west of us, across the Puget Sound, and the Cascades to the east. I’m thrilled about the Mountain Majesty set!
Mary Hart says
My most memorable trip was years ago when I trekked from Kathmandu to Everett Base Camp. It was 3 weeks of climbing some of the most spectacular mountains I have ever seen. And then to experience Mt. Everest!! Nothing will ever compare to that!!
Terri E. says
I worked at the Rocky Mountain Repretory Theater for two years and lived every minute of it!
I have many wonderful mountain memories. I grew up in the mountains of NC with their great vistas and waterfalls, have visited Mt. Fuji in Japan, Denali in Alaska and the Alps in Europe. Now we live in Delaware where everything is about sea level!! LOL
My most memorable trip to the mountains was many years ago when I took an eight mile hike up a mountain in Georgia, stayed over night in a Appalachian trail cabin, and then hiked back a different trail which was five miles down – magnificent!
Hmmm…I went to Mount Hood, but that was for skiing! So I didn’t get that summery mountain feel/scenery, like in your creations, LOL.
Suzanne A, says
When my children were young, we stayed in the White Mountains of NH. The most memorable part of the trip was riding the Cog Railway up to the top of Mount Washington.
My husband and I took my Dad who was getting on in years to Switzerland to take the trip to Jungfraujoch. I have vivid memories of my dad holding on to a sign and pointing as to how high we were.
María Alba Negrón says
I’ve always been a city girl, so mountains for me are gorgeous to look at and make a card with, but when it comes to climbing or camping…that is a big NO NO for me! However if I can find a gorgeous George Clooney look alike, (the original is already taken), I MIGHT consider it, although if he carries me it will be so much better!
Lisa Echerd says
We honeymooned in the Canadian Rockies. The vistas were stunning. I particularly remember a hike we did up this steep hill which seemed like torture but at the top it overlooked a glacier and a lovely blue lake. So beautiful!
Anne B says
My most memorable trip to the mountains was a skiing holiday we took the I was growing up. We were staying in a hut near an isolated ski field and there was so much snow we got snowed in. Such a great time for all the kids that were there.
Mary K says
I met my husband in college in Colorado, so we enjoyed many a dating adventure in the mountains!
took my grandmother -in-law to dollywood and stayed in a cabin in the smoky mountains for her 80th birthday with her chidren, grandchildren, and great grand child (only one at the time). It was such a memorable experience for all of us.
In 2014, we climbed Mount Kinabalu on the island of Borneo. It was half as tall as Everest. We climbed to the base camp during the day and tried to summit in time for sunrise, but my boyfriend was affected by altitude sickness so we had to return to base camp. I insisted on staying one more night to try again since I knew how much it would mean to my boyfriend to summit. Fortunately, there was a cancellation so we were able to try again, and we did summit with the help of blood-thinner medications. We were sore for days afterwards, but it was worth it.
Lori Y says
The Rocky Mountains: August 2000. One of my college roommates had a destination wedding in the amphitheater at Rocky Mountain National Park overlooking Moraine Park. It was my first visit to the Rocky Mountains and I fell in love! Since then, my husband and I along with our kids have visited every 2-3 years. The scenery and hiking cannot be beat.
Fabulous release! I have so many mountain memories but my most recent favorite is a visit to Salvation Mountain with a young friend who told everyone I made her climb a mountain and we had to stay on the yellow brick road and weren’t allowed to slide down the waterfall, etc. It is definitely a one of a kind mountain.
Montana. It’s a dream we’ve had for many years and someday we’ll get there but for now it is our dream destination.
My husband took me to a resort on Mt. Ranier in Washington state for our honeymoon. It was so beautiful! One of only 4 states to have a mountain over 14,000 ft. It was truly breathtaking!
Mutzy Mia says
We went to Gatlinburg, TN, and the Smokey Mountains on our honeymoon MANY years ago. It has always been a special place for us. When our daughters were in middle school we took them to Disney World and went through the Smokey Mountains and stayed in Gatlinburg for a couple nights on our way home. Their most favorite part was not Disney World but the Smokey Mountains…God’s creation wins every time!
Since the mountains are my favorite place to vacation, a “most memorable” is difficult. I love Yosemite and have lived in both California and Washington states. I spent summers hiking the Sierra Nevadas as a teenager, and I love living in between the Cascades and Olympics. My first trip to the Sierras, as a fifteen year old, included passing out from the altitude and heat exhaustion, meeting a bear cub on a late night bathroom run, and falling down a waterfall … my family jokes that they are always thankful when I come home from the mountains in one piece. The mountains are God’s country.

I’ve flown over mountains before but never have they been the main destination for out trip. Would love to plan something.
I spent my sophomore year of college in Salt Lake City but didn’t have a car so I could never take in the majestic Rocky Mountains except at a distance. I’d love to go back there someday and truly explore not only the mountains but Utah’s deserts as well.

Seeing the mountains in Boulder, Colorado! Oh My! I was use to seeing the mountains in Tennessee and they are ant hills in comparison. I felt so small surrounded by these massive hills. I could see myself living there!
When I was a lot younger, I went on a hike up part of the Appalachian Trail. It actually became a first date with a man I’d become engaged to, but sadly not marry. We went off to a part where we could sit and dangle our legs over the edge and just spent hours talking. Come to think of it, that edge was so steep, I’d probably panic if I saw my daughter doing the same thing! lol But the view was stunning, and the company was completely enjoyable!

I live alongside the Rocky Mountains. When I was younger, I liked going on hikes. The views can be amazing. Now I am more likely to just drive to a picnic spot in the canyon with family than hike, but it is still beautiful.
Cindy C says
I flew over the mountains when we went to Vegas! We’ve gone thru the Smokey mountains & those are just as beautiful!
Leslie Scholes says
My late husband & I had a friend who had a cabin in the mountains. We went up with him several times and it was always beautiful and peaceful – good memories…
Janet Mack says
We have been to every range except the north west on our trips across the states. Each one is different and beautiful and I have great memories of the trips.
For the past few years I have been going to the Poconos Mountains in PA. This is an annual stamping retreat for a group of us. So much fun! We do a card swap and share projects and techniques. In between we go outside and take walks. One of our group comes up with a menu and cooks dinner every night. Every year is a memorable trip.
Lisa Dolson says
I live in the mountains of western Montana, so we get to see lovely scenery a lot. Two years ago, my niece and a friend of hers and I did a moonlight bike ride up the Going to the Sun Highway in Glacier Park. The views are stunning in daylight or moonlight! We got to the top of the pass at midnight. Lots of other people were there too with their bikes. It’s a magical experience! And then you head back down – going faster than you want to know!
My most memorable trip to a mountain was to mt Rainer where it was the first time I ever saw snow!
A dream destination would be a ski trip in the Swiss alps – the history and the majesty!
Beth M. says
Our family stayed near Pike’s Peak one year. It was a steep and foggy drive.
I’ve always wanted to see the Rocky Mountains and hopefully I will have that chance next summer!
Lesa Wolfe says
I grew up near Mt. Rainer in WA state. It was so much fun in the winter, but the summertime wildflowers were breathtaking.
Dawn K-M says
My first trip to Whistler B.C. was probably my most memorable mountain trip. It was just intended as a day trip from Vancouver, but we loved it. We have gone back at least once a year since that trip. I think I leave part of me there every time we leave.
Keysha Sain says
My most memorable “mountain trip” was when I took my first drive to W Virginia to see my son. On the way there I had to cross a bridge – and I am TERRIFIED of bridges. On the way home I was given some directions that would allow me to avoid going over that bridge…. which turned out to be through the mountains. It was MORE terrifying than going across the bridge!!! I added maybe 3 hours to my drive home because I was driving so slow!! A couple of times I wanted to just pull over and call back home for someone to drive and come get me! But I knew that wasn’t going to happen (I live in Michigan) so I just drove slowly, praying the whole way – trying to not have a panic attack. Yeah, that was a very memorable and terrifying trip! Lol! Now I just drive the 2 minutes across the bridge! Yes, it is only a 2 minute drive across that bridge!

The year my dad chaperoned the Indian Princesses Camp out was such an awesome time spent with my dad as a little girl. I learned the importance of squatting & sticking your bum way out to pee on the side of the trail that trip!
Suzy Girl says
It was a trip of a lifetime to Denali Park. You talk about amazing! So beautiful seeing all the wildlife. I will never forget that trip for as long as I live.
Denise E says
I love the mountains. My dad grew up in the mountains of Western NC and I always love going there. But, my most memorable trip to a mountain was in Alaska when we flew over Mt. McKinley (nka Denali). It was a gorgeous sight that I will never forget.
MaryAnn N says
Most memorable trip to the Rockies was on a bus trip through the mountains. Beautiful but a major landslide detoured our trip. Roads were blocked and we ended up trying to find hotel rooms for a bus load of people because we could not get to our booked hotel rooms.
Linda c says
As a child we traveled to Austria to spend the summer with my grandparents. We spent a lot of time hiking in the Austrian mountains. It was amazing.
On our way home from Yellowstone national park my husband and I stopped tat Jenny Lake, rented a canoe and looked at the beautiful Tetons ! We even saw a moose and her calf on the shoreline!!!! It was a beautiful detour on our way home! First time without the kids!
Vickie Johnson says
I have always wanted to go to the mountains. I know it must be the most beautiful site.
Lisa R. says
I visited the Swiss Alps last year. So, very beautiful!
I would love to see the Alps.
Christina Smith says
I would love to visit Switzerland to see the mountains there. They’ve always looked beautiful in pictures, so it would be amazing to them in real life.
Liz R says
Just living close to Mountains, makes us so lucky. They are ever changing with the seasons!
Emma G says
Going to the Blue Mountain to visit the Three Sisters. Beautiful spot! Thanks for an amazing release.
Bridget W says
My favorite mountain trip was this past year when our annual family reunion was a destination reunion held in The Smoky Mountains in Gatlinburg TN. We had two 10-bedroom cabins that we stasyed in. It was absolutely beautiful, relaxing & refreshing. Can’t wait to go again.
Peggy Nickeslon says
I recently moved to,Colorado,from California. Although we had mountains in CA nothing compare to the Rockies. I am having such a fabulous time exploring the beauty of Colorado.
Every new mountaIn provides me a new and breathtaking memory.
Nancy M says
I would love to experience some ice mountains, aka the glaciers in Alaska. They are so remarkable in photographs that I hope to see them in person one day.
Seeing the Alps for the first time was amazing, but seeing Mt. Denali in Alaska topped that experience. It is truly majestic! Someone with us remarked that it was the kind of mountain that Disney would’ve created if he could’ve made one. The comment got a laugh, but it was so true!
Michelle Benoit says
I would love to visit Mount Fuji. Dear friends recently relocated to Japan and it would be great to travel to this iconic volcano with them!
Cheryl F. says
The first time we ever took our kids camping will always be a great memory for me.
Andrea Rawluk says
When I was a teenager my parents took us on a vacation ito upstate New York. I remember not wanting to go on this “boring ” trip. I wound up having a great time and to this day have the fondest memories of all we did together.
Here in the UP we have several mountains that you can climb and see the beautiful site of Lake Superior, so I don’t have to go far for great site and memorable hikes.
I love spending time in the mountains in the Desert Southwest where my parents live. My husband proposed to me in our ‘secret place’ ~ a lovely valley, surrounded by mountains, in the Sonoran Desert in Arizona. We hike back to our ‘secret place’ each time we visit my parents! ♡
Krista W says
We went to Mammoth Lakes, California for my brother-in-law’s birthday. We had a great time hiking during the day, and at night there were so many stars. It was great to be close to nature and enjoy the time with family.
Terri Bills says
We are fortunate to live very close to the Adirondack Mountains so are able to spend quite a bit of time there. My favorite was on a trip back from Florida we drove through the Blue Ridge Mountains in the Shenandoah Valley. Such beautiful majestic sites.
Linda E says
When I was in college, I was fortunate to take a three-week European vacation that included time in the Swiss Alps! Talk about maintains! The view from the top of Mount Titlis was amazing!
When I visited my parents in Oregon, the plane’s approach to Portland usually went around Mt Hood. It was beautiful and I had the pleasure to travel around it many times. It is Majestic!
Lindsey L says
Our family had a cabin in Colorado and I loved going there when I was little. My whole extended family worked together to build it, and some of my very best memories come from there…just simple things like playing games together or exploring the woods or floating in the river, but special all the same.
Cynthia Johnson says
My most memorable trip to the mountains was with a guy I was in love with. He just came by on a Sunday afternoon and said let’s go to the mountains. Of course I said okay. I missed work Monday but that was okay. I would have done almost anything for him. We’re not together now, but I have sweet memories of that trip.
Dana W says
Hmm not a fan of seeing mountains! I’m a city girl!
I remember going up the mountain near Red River, NM with my mother, grandmother, aunt and cousins. The roads were barely wide enough for two cars! We had a flat. All traffic going our way had to wait. My grandmother had the cousins and me on our knees under a tree praying for safety and a quick tire change. No one offered to help but, no one got impatient. It had to be quite a sight!
When the girls were young, we went skiing each year in Big Sky Montana for the week of Thanksgiving. Really great memories made during those trips. The girls still talk about the trips fondly. Wouldn’t it be great to go back some day!
Rebecca F. says
I love living near the beautiful Smoky and Blue Ridge Mountains.
Every drive is a gorgeous view!
Shawn Wenrich says
I have always wanted to visit Colorado for their amazing mountains. However I do live in Arizona so we have quite a few majestic mountains here as well!
