I like big views and I cannot lie
You other hikers can’t deny
When I made it to the ridge at a decent pace
And that tall mountain in my face
My heart sung
My grin’s humongous
Bigger than a bear-toothed fungus
The beauty is ensnaring
I’m hooked and I can’t stop staring
Oh, Baker, I wanna sit with ya
And take your picture.
Pick a blueberry,
And that bear scat makes me wary.
The mountain goats on a distant peak,
A great way to end the week.
Mushrooms left and right -
A mycologist’s delight!
Red Amanita not out-done by the setting sun, hon!
The fall light is fading fast
And I ain’t used to that.
Back down to the car we scramble,
Thus ends my ramble
(Some hunters on the trail and reports of a bear sighting just within the NCNP boundary)
