Mountain Trek

Field of delicate buttercups
like bits of scattered sun.

Yellow flowers frothing,
undulating in mountain breeze.

Nature’s golden comforter
warmth beneath her jewel-blue sky.

Photos from yesterday’s mountain trek through the Magellan National Forest in Punta Arenas, Chile. A six mile hike: three from 800 feet above sea level, starting in fields of buttercups and wind-blasted tree remains to 1900 feet above sea level with fantastic views of the Magellan Straits, and three back down. A glorious day.
