A Hiking Story

We drove hundreds of miles.

We parked.

We hiked in frigid temperatures.

On the advanced trail.

We stopped to check the map.

That was left in the car.

Because apparently we are not very advanced.

I ate a Clif Bar.

We chose a route that took us no where close

To the destination we came to see.

Because you can’t get there from here.

But eventually took us to the road

That would take us back.

To the car that was parked.

In the place it remained.

After we hiked ten frigid miles.

And drove hundreds of miles.

And the most amazing thing we saw all day

Was that damn car.

But then we had amazing burritos.

All’s well that end’s well.
