Summiting In Leelanau

In Leelanau, as in life ...

The summit beckons.

Rising 500 feet above the big lake,

The dunes challenge me to climb ....

To persevere against the wind, 

And the cold,

And the daunting rise of the precipice.

In so doing, ...

I recall the ascent of my life .....

The triumphs and travails,

The fortunes and misfortunes,

From boyhood to mature man.

Now, ...

Having scaled this mountain of sand, ...

And most of the mountain of life, ...

One thing is certain ....

The view from the summit ...

Is infinitely more satisfying ...

Than I could have imagined.


See You In Leelanau Up North,
Chris
