On the Mountain Forum web site the Mountain Institute have published an April 1988 paper 'Sacred Mountains and Environmental Conservation: A Practitioner's Workshop'. Worldwide an estimated 1 billion people hold one mountain or another as sacred. Here are four sacred mountains that you might like to virtually visit: [1] Toas Mountain on John H. Farr's 'FotoFeed' web site; [2] Mount Blanca, the Navajo Sacred Mountain of the East, near Alamosa in southern Colorado, on Harrison Laphie Jr.'s page 'Navajo Sacred Mountains'; [3] Aoraki in New Zealand on Heurisko Ltd's page for the 'Mountains of Mana'; [4] Shiprock on Laurent Martres' page 'Realm of the Ancient Ones', part of the 'PhotoTripUSA' web site.

Do you ever stand looking at a landscape and thinking how interesting it might be to travel back in time? [1] Jeff Johnson is a volcano seismologist, peak bagger, and cyclist. He rode the 7,000 kilometres from one end of South America to the other, passing through Patagonia as he did so, on what he prosaically calls with considerable modesty 'Jeff's Big Bike Trip'. [2] Paleonotological illustrator Luis V. Rey's amazing work includes images of the sauropod nesting grounds of Late Cretaceous period in Patagonia. [3] Mike Engberson and Chad Hunter are featured on the web site of the 'Utah Mountainbiking' family riding the trail from Pritchett Canyon to Prostitute Butte, which passes over the Kayenta series of rocks that forms the border between the Triassic (the age of reptiles, 245 million years ago) and the Jurassic (the first age of dinosaurs, 208 million years ago). [4] Luis Rey has also illustrated an Astrodon (a brachiosaurid sauropod) of the Early Cretaceous period in Utah being attacked by a pack of Utahraptor ostrommaysorum.
