A collection of hills from around the world.
At Mission Hill Winery in West Kelowna I took one last photo of my favourite sculpture and then we meandered home, fortunately just up the hill to my friend’s place. It was late afternoon when we made our way up to the fort on top of the hill above Bundi, India.
Downhill Demesne in Ireland, UK, has a trail that took us over hill and dale, into a mysterious ‘black glen’ and then to the edge of an embankment overlooking Downhill Strand. Here we were looking out at a temple from the ruins of the mansion.
Once atop the Cerro de la Bufa you can look back down at the view of Zacatecas, Mexico. This is the hill where the revolutionaries, led by Pancho Villa and Felipe Ángeles, fought the last battle of the Revolucion Mexicana and took control of city.Mr. Win herded us through the market and then we followed some village women up the many stairs that led up to the temple on top of the hill, a fantasy overlooking the village at the end of Inle Lake in Myanmar.
The name of Death Valley is a clue; it starts with the word ‘Death’. Travelling there in the summer, when the temperatures can get up to 134° F (57° C), they don’t recommend walking out of sight of your car. Also to carry water, water, and more water. Water for you, water for your car’s radiator. The reason it’s still wild is because it’s so inhospitable. Ouch. Even the grass has thorny bits on Dolgellau’s Precipice Walk in Snowdonia, Wales.Looking down at a view of a cemetery and the vineyards beyond from the Castillo de Curiel, a renovated medieval castle that had been converted into a hotel near Penafiel in Spain. After a small hike up a trail we got to look down on the Duoro River in Portugal.
Chateau Gaillard, in the province of Normandy, like most castles is set high atop a hill with a spectacular view of the town below.Creamsicle-coloured mountains in Northwest Argentina on our way through the Andes. (That’s a small graveyard at the bottom of the mountain.)

Wow beautiful views all around
Yes, no matter how much you struggle getting to the top of the hill the views are always worth it…
A varied and colourful interpretation! Love it.
Hills are interesting creatures – so much work to get up but so worth it!
Stunning photos. I love the sculpture at the beginning. It looks alive and interesting with the sun. Great capture of the village women at the stairs too.
I was glad you talked of Death Valley. That was supposed to be on our trip just a few weeks ago. The monsoon weather and flash floods closed it. Video footage is quite scary. You can see it from the National park site.
The creamsicle colored hills in Argentina are beautiful. The cemetery looks like a village, doesn’t it? Very nice collection with a nice presentation. Thank you for joining, over the hill.
Wow, Death Valley has a really different look at the moment! When we were travelling through the American Southwest for the month October I titled my journal ‘Ten Minutes of Rain’ as that was all we had, even in the Pacific Northwest where it rains a lot!
We sure need in here in the southwest. Lucky for you you had good weather in PNW. We did too.
Some wonderful examples Elizabeth – my favorite though is from Bundi. Amazing
Yes, the fort and the palace just below it loomed over Bundi in such a magical way we climbed up there and visited it twice…
WOW. You have seen some HILLS!
Waiting for a knee replacement has me wondering if I’m ‘over the hill’ as I can’t get up them any more…
😱 Get anything motorized. 👍
I seem to remember escalators and elevators up to various outdoor spaces in Singapore – it may be my kind of place!
