The journey to the top of the mountain was rugged and dry. The small vehicle jumped about as the driver dodged ruts in the road. The bouncing and jousting about was frankly, hard on the body. But breathtaking samples of the area’s mountainous splendor could be seen along route in glimpses through the trees. Virtually hidden during the ascent, this natural landscape that is the subject of poetry was revealed at last. Arriving on the top, a majestic view of white caps stretched the horizon. The trip seemed a trifle now as the travelers stood silent in reverence and awe.
