Finger Mesa

Wilderness Day 3: We peaked Finger Mesa and had some time to reflect and rest after our long hike. Here are my thoughts and my view from the mountain.

I sit atop Finger Mesa
at the pinnacle
on the highest rock
a bounty of rocks surrounded
with luscious green pastures
every direction I look
mountains upon mountains
as if God had huge blocks of Earth
and began carving with his bare hands
and carved for days and days
sculpting plateaus and peaks
ridges and slopes
decorated precisely
streams slithering through the valleys
patches of snow
and legions of trees
all born from God's hand in one day
the only explanation
God the creator of all
