Because of this love for the beach, I haven’t really given many other things a chance. Plus, I am not really an outside person in general, so going hiking in the mountains or camping or skiing would never really be something I would do and/or enjoy.
But, since being in Honduras for well over a month now, I have an appreciation for the MOUNTAINS in this country. They are amazing. It’s not something I even thought about prior, so I was surprised when they were EVERYWHERE! They surround the airport, we twisted and turned on the way to Copan Ruinas, I traveled up and down them for various excursions, they are all the way to the coast, they are literally on the coast and even on Roatan. Now that I am at NPH, we are surrounded by them, as well. Travelling to and from Tegus, I have seen some of the most picturesque views of the mountains.
There is definitely something majestic and magical about them. They are a natural beauty. I am always reminded of God’s beauty when I see the ocean/beach, but I have been bombarded by His amazing beauty from the mountains, as well. It’s also a great reminder that God is everywhere, even in a country where it’s not always safe to walk outside, people struggle to find food or are dying of very treatable/preventable diseases. He is here and is everywhere. And, that is awesome.
