Lindsey Haiku

Early snow, dusted peaks.
Wind-swirled mists. Glorious.
Summit solitude.

but here is one I like to embrace the day after a big climb:

sedentary life
snuggie smells of chinese food
febreze hides secrets

And then the descent....
Scree-coated steep rock gulley.
Relieved to be down.

Aging man, young girl.
Lindsey blankets two bound souls.
Daddy loves daughter.

We were there 9/10/11; was it the same foggy day as your ascent?

This is fabulous.

I almost always wear a bathing suit when I climb. If you see me say hey!
