Did You Know That You Can Reach A Point On A Mountain That Is The Furthest Place From The Center Of The Earth?  

Written by Cheryl Freier, author of The Grayling Hidden Truth Poems and The Day Of The Hidden Truth Poems

 

The place is furthest from the Center of the earth and it is located in theAndesMountains, on theCordillera Occidentalof the Andes of Central Ecuador.  The location is 93 miles southwest ofEcuador’s capital,Quito.  And the area is often called the Chimboraza. 

 

On  a clear day, one can see the summit of Chimboraza from the coastal city ofGuayaquil, which is nearly 90 miles away from the summit.  The story of the uniqueness of this part of the country is told by the natives, as they know from stories handed down from generation to generation that this special area used to be the head of a volcano; but it is classified today as an inactive volcano.  There is a natural protective ecosystem, fauna system, which is formed around theChimborazo, which protects the habitat of the wildlife in this area.  One can see the colorful body colors of black, white, and reds, and a combination of a red body with a white head on the sheep-like animals:  the vicuna, llama, and the alpaca. 

 

This whole area, this part of the world is a ‘hidden truth’ that very much reveals itself as one travels to the area.  It was a ‘hidden truth’ during WWII that some parts of the Slovakian mountains were exceptionally beautiful and pristine and revealed itself as one escaped further into the woods away from the Nazis who took over the towns and persecuted the towns’ people.  Read Cheryl Freier’s The Grayling Hidden Truth Poems, and The Wild Grasses Hidden Truth Poems, and her other books.
