On the way to Mont Blanc


This album was created in memory of Rahel Maria Liu by her parents.

From time to time she was mountaineering in the area of Mont Blanc. Rahel died in a thunderstorm while climbing the Innominata Ridge.
We remember Rahel's love of Mont Blanc.

This is a great idea

I only talked to Rahel a few times on this site, but I think this is a fine tribute to her.

Very moving!

Auch wenn ich Rahel nicht gekannt habe, so bin ich jedesmal den Tränen nahe, wenn ich diese Bilder sehe, Hiltrud...dieses so einfache Memorial unter dem Mont Blanc-Gipfel hat etwas so bewegendes, und ich fühle mit Dir...

Re: Very moving!

Danke, Eric, für Dein Mitgefühl und Deine Teilnahme an diesem traurigen Ereignis. Rahel hatte den Mont Blanc in ihr Herz geschlossen und wollte ihn von allen Seiten besteigen, um ihn wirklich zu kennen. Was mag die Bergsteiger bewegt haben, die als erste einen Aufstieg auf einen unbekannten Berg wagten?
Liebe Grüße
Hiltrud

Re: Very moving!

Ich denke gerade über diese Frage nach...es gibt sicherlich tausend Gründe dafür, man könnte allein darüber schon ein ganzes Buch schreiben...man muss mitunter sehr tief in die menschliche Seele hineinschauen, um die Gründe zu finden, warum Menschen immer wieder solche Wagnisse unternehmen...ich glaube, die menschliche Neugierde und das Bedürfnis nach Aussergewöhnlichem ist oft stärker als jede Angst um die eigene Haut...
Ganz liebe Grüsse sendet Dir
Eric

Re: Very moving!

Inzwischen habe ich gelernt, die Entscheidungen, die andere allein in eigener Verantwortung treffen, zu achten; denn gerade diese persönlichen Entschlüsse gehören zum einmaligen Lebensweg eines Menschen.
Herzliche Grüße

A very fitting memorial

to your daughter and a great climber. How sad that such a promising young life should be cut short.
