Hiking the Mountain Trails


Escaping a steamy summer day

we walk the lake trail

Waves lap against the shore

Children splash in the cool waters

Gnarled roots from giant oaks

Entwine the rocky forest floor

A rain-washed rocky slope

Rises up perilously ahead

We must go on, no turning back

Stumble, crawl, trudge on

A helping hand reaches out

Safely on to the trail


A beautiful mountain escape
