The Little Things

A couple to start:
That feeling when your ears pop on the descent and all of a sudden you can hear the full bassy glory of the wind and the streams and the waterfalls. I'm sure the pressure differential is not too significant but I'm also sure it's not just me that this happens to. A small reminder that you're pushing yourself, if only a bit, into the realm of the birds and the aeroplanes
Also that time of year when only the very highest summits are pure shimmering white, so you can spot a barely overtopping munro in a panorama which you never noticed it in before

You feel you could walk and just not stop.

.....not finding any hidden, embedded rocks under the sleeping mat
.....one minute thinking you'll be in clag for the day then the next minute coming out of it to an inversion

The quiet, almost holy moment of concentrated staring at the boiler when it's almost boiling, for your cup of tea or bouillon.

Rushing to get the tent up and food cooked before the light fails, then ending up with half an hour to sit and watch the sunset.

Actually, this isn't a little thing for me, it's the main reason I do it
