Afro Omega - Picking up the Pieces. This song always reminds me of climbing and hiking

I never listen to music while hiking but if I did it would have to include this:

Most epic hiking music I have found yet...

http://youtu.be/rWitVrXe5tg

This Will Destroy You is amazing...I'm a metal head and despite that I still can't get enough of these guys. Pop this in your ears around sunrise and just soak it all in :)

I don't partake (in tunes) when hiking but thank you for this. Very good stuff.

I never listen to music while hiking...but AFTER is a different story:

Collegiate Peaks Music Festival - bvmusicfestival.com

Anyone else going next weekend? My husband and I are hiking segments 10 and 11 of the CT, hopefully getting Massive and Elbert along the way and coming off the trail on friday in time for some music, beer, and if my feet are still working...a little dancing :D
If you're lucky enough to live in the mountains...you're lucky enough.

I generally only listen if hiking around in areas I am really familiar with. If I am on anything beyond a simple hike my ear buds stay out. Even when in they are on pretty low volume, or I will leave one bud pretty loose so I can still hear things.

But yes...This Will Destroy You is awesome! They blew my mind live a few months ago. Explosions in the Sky, and God is an Astronaut are pretty similar and also very cool.

"Little Fluffy Clouds" by The Orb. This song is a playlist classic for my drives across Colorado or the long approaches and always makes me think of the mountains. Someone posted this song on YouTube with a slideshow of landscape photos.

"What were the skies like when you were young?"

The song has a short intro before the Rickie Lee Jones interview kicks in and the photos start scrolling.

This is great if you are into that kind of thing:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wCgxkQj_Qo
The Dalai Lama when asked what surprised him most about humanity:
“Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
