Mount Franklin's Peak;
fun mountain climb memories

I'm having memories again this day
Memories of El Paso and it's hill
Mount Franklin beckoned me oft before
I would climb the mountain, rocks and all
Then the cable car I'd ride back down
I'll climb no more though return I might
Will be in the little orange cage
Up and down, this time I'll ride both ways,
Titanium knee, creaking joints, they beg
Please do leave the climb for younger folk

Still, to go is to admire however you arrive at the top.

mountain men may climb
or ride the car and look down ~

It would have been fun when young. Going up trudging and down by way of the orange cage. By right it would be unthinkable to do the same now.One need not have to prove anything anyway! Thanks for sharing Dr Jim!

Hi Dr & Mrs Jim, we like this sentence very much "I'm having memories again this day" :)
