Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Yesterday I took a trip over the mountain with an old friend. It was my first trip on the mountain since I retired. We had a great visit and saw some of the prettiest lands in the nation.

I was somewhat surprised to find that all the snow was gone on the road---but just barely---it was still wet in a couple of places. The part of the road that is under construction survived the winter pretty well. I would think the construction company would start working pretty quick to finish it up.

We had a great trip and a good visit. Lots and lots of talk about the "good old days" and we exchanged a lot of memories from our careers. All in All it was a fun day. THANKS FOR THE RIDE!!!

Guess it is time to take a trip on the other mountain to see the elk---I miss that a lot.
