God's View

Sometimes there are no words to describe breathtaking beauty. After our journey up to the Piazza Michelangelo, I was left with this speechless feeling. Looking back on all the photos I took, the number is slightly embarrassing, especially considering most of the pictures are pretty much the same.... It was just too beautiful to stop taking them. I'd move about 5 ft and it would be just ever so slightly different of an angle forcing me to have to take yet another one. Let's just say it took me lots of time to narrow down the keepers.

It is one thing to be venturing through the surrounding and always surprising beauty of the narrow roads of Florence, being eye level with it all, but the ability to look down on as incredible of a city as Florence is truly breathtaking. There is something about looking down onto vast land... all the colors, the forever expanding landscape, that is completely indescribable. Whether it is hiking up to the Piazza Michelangelo to overlook Florence or even hiking Humpback in Cville, the view from the top is always the best. I guess it makes sense that earth was created that way.... He's definitely got the best seat in the house.
