We have scoured the internet to come up with a comprehensive list of best quotes about mountains and clouds. In our opinion, when you are in the mountains clouds can either be your friend or your enemy depending on the day. They may frame the mountain, add some contrast, and provide some shade on a hot day. Or they may cover the mountains and rain on you. Or you may end up above the clouds – which might be my favourite feeling of all. One thing we don’t have mixed opinions on is quotes about clouds and mountains – they always help us describe our photos and provide inspiration.
We quit our jobs over 10 years ago and have been travelling ever since and during that time we make a point of getting into the mountains and enjoying nature at its best whenever we can. Hiking in the mountains is when we really slow down and have time to appreciate the little things like the play of shadows moving across the mountains from the clouds. We have also paired our favourite quotes on mountains and clouds with our favourite mountain photos.
