We drove hundreds of miles.
We hiked in frigid temperatures,
On the advanced trail.
After thousands of steps
We stopped to check the map.
That was left in the car
Thousands of steps ago.
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 it took us to the road
That would take us back.
To the car that was parked.
In the place it remained
All the while we hiked ten frigid miles.
After driving those 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
When the end of the story
Makes a memory of great caliber.
