13,800′

The air is cold and biting and clean.  It is everything that air should be, weightless, and clarifying, and well.

The sky is boundless and unadulterated blue, impossible to distinguish from the horizon of limitless ocean.

The clouds rest and tumble on one another, forming a brilliantly white and flawless sea four thousand feet below.

The sun is closer here, radiating warmth with the severity of its own non-interruption, touching and heating skin without compromise.

The wind is sharp, delivering the sound of simultaneous stillness and motion.  It is the only entity to accompany here, completely enveloping and completely inaccessible.
