Haiku #2

With record warm temperatures in February and the valleys free of snow, I am tempted to go hiking (rather than skiing). The problem is trying to access trails further up in the mountains or in shady valleys. The hillsides themselves may be free of snow but the trails covered in patchy but very slick ice, making footing a concern, especially going downhill.

  1. Thank you for being brave enough to write haikus and post them. I like both of the poems you’ve posted so far, especially #1. I can smell what you smelled! 🙂 Maybe that’s a result of living next door to a ranch….
