Dove Mountain and Rainy Day

Image by kenne

cold is the sky

among close friends

inspire with awe

yet cast in doubt

at the new do

looks like a crown

tower of strength

high in the sky

a crest of thorns

part of a hat

Dove Mountain and Rainy DayRock At The Pass — Image by kenne

I will see you at the rock,

the rock at the pass —

not till you are lost,

then you will find me

by the river sitting on the rock.

You starting point will be

the mystery of my loneliness.

Kenne with His Hiking Friends Tom and Kristin, January 7, 2013 — Images taken with kenne’s D800

On the 7th of January the Monday Morning Milers hiked the Alamo Springs Trail, returning on the Wild Burro Trail near the Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain in the Tortolita Mountains. The Golf Club at Dove Mountain is host to the  Accenture Match Play Championship this February. The view I prefer of the golf course is from the Alamo Springs Trail.

This Friday I will again be hiking Alamo Springs, assisting in the weekly Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists hikes.
