SOMETHING OF A FAR WEST JOURNAL

off early
to the trailhead
and passing through

the Alpine village
bakery closed, bookstore, too

with binoculars, trying to identify peaks
below others / others above

Rainier, Ahtanum, Scarface, (three long shaggy peaks)

lightning’s struck
burnt earth next to sagebrush

forget why any of us come here
even the old folks in RVs

yellow lichen on rock
deep green moss on another

back to Ellensburg in time for dinner

meaning the Girl Scout camp
