Stephanie and Maryellen's adventure

 

“I’m from New York...No, Upstate New York”

Four pairs of boots start through the snow.
Four pairs of sunglasses look up the mountain.
Four hands ball a little tighter into gloves.

Over a rutted out road, down a hill, over a bridge
Then up. And up.
Over rocks. Around trees.

A plateau, an out-of-the-wind overlook.
A vista of snow-covered trees and peaks.
The sharp smell of cold and snow.

Through pine trees with snow like glitter.
Across a ridge.
Around a corner to a cabin and an ice-covered fire tower.

Up the fire tower, knocking ice to the ground.
Feeling the wind pick up as the ground drops farther away.
Sneaking gloves off to take pictures.

Back down the fire tower.
To a spot out of the wind. Still in the sun.
Hot thermos drinks and snack time.
