The harsh draught brings the summer smell of pines, the air is crisp and cold in your lungs. The mountain goats are nowhere to be seen; far less gracious are the tourists in colorful attire, climbing up the slope, chewing on thick protein bars instead of grass. The iron calves of the iron men pass us by on our ascent; mountain born, the steep terrain is as comfortable to them as ever and their shoes look the part: sturdy, reliable, firm in spite of years of hiking all year round. Looking at these infallible mountaineers, I feel briefly ashamed of my gelatine thighs and city origins, the "café society" as people say. I do spend more time going up and down the hills than sitting in a coffee shop, however, can I be ever forgiven for not looking the part myself?
