On top of the world please
step carefully one foot directly in
front of the other balancing between
fear and everlasting memories
eyes wanting to look down
at each footstep the heart wants to see
beyond the deeply curving horizon beyond
the deepest blue shadows beyond
the doubts and fatigue each breath
shallow but full skimming
the beautiful narrow adventure line

I had the pleasure of enjoying the view at the summit of Lassen Peak (10,457 ft) a couple weeks ago. It was our final challenge after backpacking in the back-country of this National Park for 4 days and 3 nights. Two members of our group were in front of me on this final trail to the true summit. I loved how they threw their arms out to their sides like they were flying. The views were marvelous as was the weather.
