We’ve been watching a whole lot of mountain lifestyle on our TV lately.  Though we don’t subscribe to cable, we do watch Netflix, Hulu and DVDs from friends, the Library and redbox.

Mountain Life on TV

We find a series, a documentary or a movie and watch it through to completion.  Though, many don’t convey the exact lifestyle we’re after, many have components of such.

We’ve seen the sad story of how an energy company’s quest for easy bounty has led to the demise of the Appalachian mountains.  We’ve watched Les Stroud put himself in some difficult but beautiful situations.  We followed the story of three cowboy families as they struggle to keep their ranches afloat.

When we can’t get outside, it can be easier than you’d think to find inspiration.
