nor a broken arm (atop Mt. Mansfield) could stop
|Pedro and MaryAnn heading up |
to Journey's End shelter to meet C & S.
are the music
of the trail.
And sometimes, what you see
reflects the heart of nature.
|Lonely hikers, rest assured, |
visitors from across the universe
hike the Vermont Long Trail.
Long Trail Kilt
Left to right, starting at top:
Susan and Carol, Pam and Maeve, Pedro, Bonnie, Beth, and Craig, Mary Ann, and Ira.
My hiking pole was a foot longer
the year I started hiking.
|SPECIAL brownies to celebrate. Minty too.|
|Rapids crossing. |
Hope the rope holds out.
|Pam leads the way.|
Tight rope walking is
a valuable Long Trail skill.
|Susan, it's not a tug of war!|
|These boots were made for walking|
and that's just what they did.
|We are all so very proud of you Susan and Carol!|

|Aphrodite Fritillary |
The Spool of Love
Let go of me, let go of me, she cried.
And the string ran free
from the spool
having reached its end.
And the kite sailed away
full of joy
For what you cannot hold
you must relinquish
and what you have to give
calls to be given.
