Pondering the Hiking Moments

Let’s remember for a moment . . .

The trailhead gatherings,
the greetings, the smiles,
the joy of another hike.

The steep climbs, the switchbacks,
the majestic views at the top,
the masterful returns.

The trail fellowship,
sharing who we are
and common interests.

The pools near mountain trails,
resting tired feet in the cold water,
while others jump in.

The hikes along ridges of granite
and the juxtapositions of water-loving
and drought-tolerating plants.

The images captured on camera,
or our mind’s eye,
lasting images to share.

That which we have added
to life’s experiences forming
a better understanding of self.

The desire, the drive to see 
what lies just over the next ridge,
on the other side of the mountain.

To our Sabino Canyon friends,
“May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome,
dangerous, leading to the most amazing view.” *
