The difference between a mountain and a molehill is your perspective.
– Al Neuharth
Mt. Whitney is definitely not a molehill (at 14,505 feet). But from this perspective at Trail Camp (@12,000 feet), it is difficult to perceive that it really is that tall. And for me, ten years after the backpacking trip, I can no longer recall which peak is which, from the angle I was standing at Trail Camp. It all depends on where you stand, what and how you see.
How like life! It isn’t that I sometimes see “wrong”, but that I need to look from a different angle, or perhaps from the perspective of someone else. It can make all the difference.
