It for the present small - to it of only 14 years: age of simple simplicity and desperate desire to mature. The age in which any city child perfectly understands computers, understands a trip as a word "travel" on the sea, and well knows, that such mountains (recently passed on geography). It for the present small, therefore the adventure conceived by adults, is considered by it simply as alternative to house sitting. Travel to mountains, to the highest point of the Ukrainian Carpathians a grief Goverla looks almost as bicycle walk on park. Certainly, she knows, that there there will be no TV and strongly suspects what to eat it is necessary at all a pizza with chips, but bothered скукота summer and thirst of adventures outweigh all probable inconveniences. It is well, solved, things are collected for half an hour: three beautiful jackets, even more beautiful five T-shirts, bedroom-slippers, well, and … it is fine, кроссовки with a jacket (what jacket, a heat for thirty!!!) it is insulting, that parents have not approved - have scarified, have replaced all beauty according to, adult, representations. All right, we will hold on.
And still it still small - Алиса, it is unexpected for itself got to the country of miracles where familiar New Year trees run the tops directly into the sky - so highly, what even to it it is clear, that "fur-trees" sounds somehow disrespectfully, Fur-trees - so, from the big letter are faster. Where the bilberry covers with a carpet glades, and nobody collects it, where at local residents favourite footwear - rubber boots (where you, beautiful T-shirts!), and the road to a parking lot, 9км occupies with extent about an hour, having shaken long-term confidence, that «our car will pass everywhere!».
It still small, therefore meticulously extorts from the father, the mountain Goverla is how much high. And that, curiously after all. Above, than this under which we stand? And tired out in a corner, grown wise experience, the adult daddy is compelled to surrender. Present, - speaks, - that the tent is boxes of matches, mountain over us - a usual rural small house, and Говерла - тридцатиэтажное a building.
It still small, therefore does not connect the resulted analogies to prospect of tomorrow's lifting - all it is somehow so unreal, that the explanation is accepted and is safely forgotten. Therefore morning lifting, a fast breakfast and the ascension beginning have passed almost imperceptibly, on enthusiasm. She does not know, that means to pass 8 kilometres uphill on foot, and then to return back - and this ignorance to it helps.
It still small, but to it not to occupy obstinacy. Having decided, that an ascension - business serious, подпитанная fatherly stories about a tourist life, she decides, that the small backpack to the top will incur itself. Also bears, not looking at all that first thirty minutes of lifting already had time to guard - on a short halt hardly is possible to take breath, and news that there is passed all kilometre, is perceived with horror. It is good, that the bilberry still covers with a carpet the earth - it is possible to stop and eat pair of berries, though any pleasure in a life.
She still small, but in one and a half hour understands, that the bilberry is not pleasure, and very successful way to save coming to an end water. And let the daddy swears, and says, that it is the vain expense of forces, but it is possible for steam of seconds to have a rest - feet are ill more and more, and ahead half more ways. And it still bears the backpack - promised to itself.
And, in spite of the fact that it still small, on last halt only one could lift it on feet - the flag of the country which have visited on Килиманджаро and Mont Blanc, unexpectedly taken of a daddy's backpack. You wish to rise with it on top? And it has reached. Not looking at all that else the small.
And let Говерла - not the Everest, and for someone has not induced it. But who from contemporaries can tell, what walked on clouds to own top of the world? And after all it still small, and it only the beginning of its way.
