S for Sierra:

Mountain ridges tipped with snow.

It’s a Spanish word.

Sierra is specifically a mountain range, not just a mountain.  It is used extensively in Spanish speaking areas, or when the Spanish settlers named the landforms.  This picture is of the Andes in Peru, taken from the bus, so excuse the reflections on the glass.

    Lovely Haiku! Of course we love our own Sierras, but I’ve also come to love the Blue Ridge Mountains in the western part of NC. These are gentle peaks with a wandering highway (the Blue Ridge Parkway) presenting breathtakingly colorful views in the fall.

      I’ve been to the Blue Ridge Mountains – just for a couple of days. Lovely!

    Easy to forget in California that when we talk of THE Sierra we’re being rather provential. Sierra Nevada, Sierra Madre. . . Doesn’t the word “sierra” mean “saw-toothed?”

      So, you want me to get out my dictionary, do you? …. yes: 1) saw 2) mountain range 3) (region) mountains. 😀

    Great picture from the bus and it looks lonely in some ways.
