Hello everybody.
The following sentence seems to me to be a little twisted... so I'm not sure I understand...

It's a part of an article about hiking in High Sierra.

"Gazing out at the horizon, one cannot help but be reminded that the views that must be worked for the hardest are invariably the ones that resonate the most."

I've tried to rewrite it with other words, to explain to you what I understand. Could you tell me if I well understand?

When you gaze out at the horizon, you inevitably think that the climb was very hard, but the more you struggle on the uphill, the more the views turn out to be beautiful and moving.

Thank you very much
Ch.

    Hello, chiarel. I think you have done a good job of paraphrasing the original sentence. As far as I can tell, you are expressing the same idea that the author of the original sentence expressed.
