Snow capped peaks and red rock creeks
Mountain goat’s retreat

Avalanche Lake
Was not a mistake
But we forgot to take
Many pictures

Getting there was tough
Up the trails through pines and meadows
Nature’s beauty on display
So many mosquitoes
Invisible animals leave their tracks
Gray dipper feeds its young
Happy to return
To the lake in the shadow of the mountains

Many Glacier mountain trail
Twelve miles up to Cracker Lake
The moose cools off, coyot’ turn tail
Tired hikers take a smoko break

Watch the marmot tease and jest
The unsuspecting voyeur
Mountain goat with snow white vest   
Wild flowers in natures’ foyer
