FSF- Head for the Hills

 

 

 

HEAD FOR THE HILLS

Meaning: To Escape

Origin: This idiom http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idiom  is as old as the Bible,  Mark 13:14"As soon, however, as you see the Abomination of Desolation standing where he ought not" --let the reader observe these words--"then let those in Judaea escape to the hills;"


While the saying can be traced back to biblical time people and animals have likely escaped to the hills since the beginning of time.


American Plains Indians would routinely “head for the hills”  and spend their summers in the Rocky Mountains at higher elevations to escape the heat of summer.
