Sycamore Canyon Trail   Leave a comment

Yesterday’s (April 28, 2017) hike from the Gordon Hirabayashi Campgrounds (4,880′ elevation) to the Sycamore Reservoir was the last SCVN Friday hike on our Spring schedule. Eleven people, including three guides, took #39 trail out of the campgrounds to the Sycamore Reservoir, a somewhat out of the way riparian area in the Sycamore Canyon in the Pusch Ridge Wilderness. The trail is 3.25 miles one way with an accumulated gain of 821 feet. The trail is also a segment of the Arizona Trail, providing majestic views, including Thimble Pear and Cathedral Rock.

This is one of my favorite hikes at the mid-level elevation of the Santa Catalina Mountains, so I was pleased to be the lead guide for the eleven hikers, which included three women from Germany.

The SCVN guided hikes will start again in June on Mt. Lemmon.

   My legacy –
         What will it be?
Flowers in spring,
The cuckoo in summer,
And the crimson maples

     Of autumn …

Driftwood Fires   Leave a comment

Virginia & Outer Banks 2013Driftwood Fires — Image by kenne

birds fly high
footprints disappear
under the tide

shadows move
the sun sets
you groove

on down the shore
where good people
go looking for armour

driftwood fires
the song of water
nature’s choir

stars above
provides direction
for the lonely gulls

the silent nights
amplify the waves
passing ship lights

girls and boys spoon
embracing as they
jump over the moon.

Journey

I have seen the wind’s tails
the breeze’s buds.
I have seen the griffon bird
& Delgadina’s tower.

Where do you come from,
o where?

I have seen a blue road
& some girls
were singing the old ballad
of the olive tree in green.

Do you know where I come from,
my sweet girl?
Well . . . from your smile is where,
your last smile.
