Upward and Curvy

Pikes Peak upward climbRide with me to the top,

Ride the curves.

Observe the beauty as you go.

We feel the pressure, the cooler surroundings, and the clouds build.

Do you notice the higher the climb to rise to the top,

We compare to our experiences of other mountains we climb,

Like the one in the Smokeys.

But it seems the steepness of this climb is more gradual,

When will we arrive, we ask ourselves.

But we endure, taking rests as we need,

Enjoy the beauty – that sometimes isn’t an easy ride – but worth the journey.
