The view is overwhelming, such beauty while so meek
Beyond the trees I perceive, astounding snow capped peaks
The different levels of wonder, gloriously grand
Seeing the spectacular Mountain, proudly as it stands

Tall tress all around ,fresh pine I smell
A deep breath I take, peace within me dwells
Pondering which way to continue natures hike
To reach the pointed summit, the Mountains delight

Continuing my climb over rocky terrain
Air getting thinner, more excitement I gain
Above my site high in the cloudy sky
An eagle spreads his winds, while echoing his cry

Howling is heard, a proud grey wolf appears
Glaring eyes upon my own, I shiver as he nears
Frozen in place, he walks past, eyes still a glare
He disappears into the trees he growled with a dare

My journey continues as I come closer to the top
So beautiful and breathless I surely had to stop
I sat upon a log to gaze at a beautiful fawn
Drinking from a crystal lake, playing on natures lawn

Finally atop of the mountain, I reached my destination
Relaxed as I view, Godsí beautiful creations
I lay back, close my eyes, in my peaceful serene place
Where nature calms your heart, God will touch your face!
