Snow On The Mountain   Leave a comment

A view of the Tucson basin from near Windy Point Vista with thimble peak in the center-right. — Image by kenne

March by march I puzzled through ’em,

turning flanks and dodging shoulders,

hurried on in hope of water,

headed back for lack of grass;

till I camped above the tree-line —

drifted snow and naked boulders —

felt free air astir to windward —

knew I’d stumbled on the Pass.

— from The Explorer by Rudyard Kipling
