The Higher I Get the Higher I Get

Sometime back in the mid-seventies I was sitting on top of 11,400 foot Mount Baldy in Arizona with a friend enjoying the view after our long hike up when a small group of Boy Scouts and their leader arrived. After sitting there for a while the leader said to his scouts “the higher I get, the higher I get,” a double entendre that still generates quite a chuckle. These days, I don’t often get as high as I did back then, but I did get out hiking the other day and enjoyed the spectacular views from the heights of 10,200 foot Mount Blackmore near Bozeman.
