QuinnCreative and I have engaged in a comment chat recently, discussing the spiritual nature of the area around Tucson, Arizona.
Time stands still for me when reading Quinn’s stories. My son nearly missed the school bus a couple of mornings ago, as I had become so enthralled in reading Quinn’s blog posts!
When Quinn made mention of the Australian Aborigines in her post “Dreaming Your Life Awake”, I simply had to mention my Magical Mountain, which I admire daily from the back of my home.
The Aboriginal name for my Magical Mountain is “Wollumbin”. The European name, given to the mountain by Captain James Cook in 1770 is “Mount Warning”.
Regular visitors will no doubt remember my waxing lyrical over the mountain on many occasions. I find myself staring at the mountain regularly, in an almost hypnotic state.
The closer I drive towards the mountain, the stronger I feel the “pull” towards it, as the folds within the rocky face of the mountain and the gigantic trees become clearer and clearer.
The “feel” of Mount Warning is both hypnotic and tranquil. I’m sure that the spirits of the local Aboriginals smile upon those who admire their “Wollumbin”.
Quinn asked for a list of posts I have written on Mount Warning. I discovered five posts in total, although two of those posts are mostly about landmarks in my area, named by Captain James Cook.
Here’s a list of links to the five posts ~
- Youthful History
- Visiting Point Danger with Eyes Wide Open
- A Beautiful Misty Morning
- On a Natural High
- Winter Sunset Over Magical Mountain
Thank you, Quinn, for giving me the opportunity to show off the beautiful area where I live yet again. I constantly complain about the humidity during the summer months ( sorry, patient readers!) but apart from the heat, we really do have the most magical scenery.
There are quite a few links here to explore, so grab a cuppa, sit back, relax, and explore a part of my world!

How wonderful for you to have a mountain in view. I am falling in love with the mountain/desert landscapes, and your Mt. Warning looks rather magical to me. Have you done much traveling up the mountain itself?
Bo, it’s possible to drive up to within three kilometres of the summit of Mount Warning, which I have done on a number of occasions, although I haven’t taken any photos up there. How remiss of me! I’ll correct that situation during the next month or two as I’d love to show everyone the beautiful landscape. It’s even more mesmerising than the mountain itself!
What a wonderful view you have! I love mountain landscapes. Now that I think about it, I love just about all landscapes. Whenever I visit a new place, there is usually something about it that grabs me. The beach, the mountains, the prairies and plans, the forests, and the deserts all have beauty to be explored.
How right you are! There is beauty to be found in all landscapes, no matter what they may be.
