Hey there, sleepy girl …
Ready to go globetrotting? Maybe sneak in a bit of, say, mountain climbing?
You’re snuggling deeper under your quilt now, aren’t you?
Hibernation is a hard habit to kick.
Luckily, I’ve arranged a unique world tour that’s just perfect for the quilt-wrapped armchair travelista who is perfectly happy in her current state of snuggling.
Today’s tour takes us to 13 mountains and ranges around the world that are known by the name (or nickname) “Sleeping Lady.”
Enjoy trying to decipher how each one got her name (some are more obvious than others) …
United States: Mount Susitna near Anchorage, Alaska
Mexico: Iztaccíhuatl on the border between the State of Mexico and Puebla
Norway: Den Sovende Dronning (Sleeping Queen) near Narvik, Norway
Peru: La Bella Durmiente (Sleeping Beauty) in Tingo Maria National Park
Philippines: Sleeping Beauty Mountain in Kalinga Province
Thailand: Doi Nang Non in the Daen Lao Range
Panama: La India Dormida in El Valle de Anton
