Let’s go up the mountain

A sunny day in January,

What should we do for fun?

Let’s head up the mountain

To see if the water runs.

Load the dogs in the back

I’ll go make some food

We’ll find a place to picnic

If we’re still in the mood.

Up the switchback we go

No snow drifts to slow us down

Across the bumpy two track road

Signs of last night’s rain all around.

Water in the double troughs

Has formed a skating rink

Weebeast slipped and slid and skated

But he never landed in the drink!

Up and up and up we go

Onward to see what we could see

Sets of animal tracks in melted snow

It’s a guess as to what they could be

A sunny spot to have some lunch

Where the canyon narrows down

“We sure live in a pretty place...”

Weebeast comments as we chow.

Back we head toward the gate

With another project ahead

Two troughs that will be feeders

Are strategically loaded in the bed.

Afternoon sun comes through the window

Our faces are content

As we rattle down the mountain

We’re grateful for a day well spent.
