The accompanied journey

Mid-morning

meandering

in the mountains

with my dad,

rubbing shoulders

with upstanding noble fir,

snapping photos

of lichens cast as

streamers onto bark,

celebrating symbiosis,

summiting snow-covered

and misty Mary’s Peak,

the highest point

on the Oregon Coast

at 4100 feet,

(nothing to

write home about

for us Montanans)

yet, the accompanied

journey

always trumps

the destination’s elevation!

    What a lovely meander! Would seem like hard work to me but I live on the plains.
