Summer is upon us and time to go hike the mountains..deeper than we can go in winter…
I am constantly amazed by the daring, ingenuity and perseverance of our ancestors. Just when you think you are farther back in the mountains than any human has been before, you round the creek bend and there sits the remains of an old steam “Donkey engine”. Backing the day if it couldn’t be packed on your own back or a mule..you didn’t go…makes an AWD SUV seem kind of ridiculous.
Proud I am of my own people and proud of our neighbors to the north with their own story to tell….to the railroaders..and the 10th Mountain who showed us what is possible. ..and this man for so many decades of great music!
