We live in a world where being big and important is a feeling sought after over anything else. Understandably so. Standing tall confirms us as the center of the Universe. It's no different than the monarchs of the old world who claimed the sun and every other celestial body revolved around our puny Earth.
But here's the secret: insignificance is the only way to experience wonder and awe. See yourself as an ant, and the world returns to you in colossal splendor. Leave room in your head only for you, and you'll lead a life of isolating self-importance.
I remember going
Out to see the big rocks
Went without you knowing
Hope you’re not too mad
I go a lot - I go a lot
Cross a line in the valley of time
Find peace of mind, figure it out
It's a beautiful morning
Here I am working on a section of a really hard traverse with super cool movement.
One of the most common types of cave formation is the stalagmite. They are formed as drops of water laden with minerals hit the cave floor and build up a mound of calcite crystals over time. The faster the water drip rate, the larger the stalagmite.
An easy way to tell the difference between a stalactite and a stalagmite is to remember that a stalactite hangs tight to the ceiling and a stalagmite you might trip over. NPS/Daniel Leifheit
