The Heat

Chillin' in the shade. No more shaggy fur!

        Today we hit the trail before the heat. Although we were hiking early, we were not alone. There were a few million mosquitoes looking for breakfast. With a shortage of hikers at that time of day, those mosquiteos were so glad to see us.

       Mount Rose is a friendly, short hike just right for a stretch, with plenty of time leftover for fetch, naps, tug-of-war and an evening stroll.

Have you wondered what is next?
Have you thought of sharing a smile?
Have you noticed how a breeze can tickle?
Have you wondered about mysteries?
Have you thought how great it is to be alive?
Have you noticed how beautiful the world is?

Have you ever felt breathless from existing?

Volcano Dust

Cedars bough down to greet me
squirrles proclaim my passing
the trail is red

Deadfall tests my endurance
sunshine beats my body
the dust is red

Switchbacks rise to defeat me
my breath is short and fast
my fur is red

Summits are for seekers
the reward earned
my volcano is red

Murtle River, Pyramid Mountain Trail
