  • Winding darkly down ‘till the mountains block the sun.
    A deep cut of stone & trees; chameleon-like over time
    Sometimes blazing - autumn leaves; sometimes glistening - snow & ice;
    Sometimes a lush, green, comforting squeeze;
    But always the dirty, oily spine.
    Cross Paint Creek past Mahan; then Cabin Creek & Sharon,
    Moving on till the climb up Big Walker, finally back into the sun.
