ADIRONDACK HIGH (With apologies to the late John Denver.)

Adirondack highs,

Where wonders meet the eyes…

Peaks remain

some folks complain,

To get there takes a long drive!

Once there we stay at Joe’s,

Her brother in lumberjack clothes…

Sodom, Minerva,

North Creek to be sure-ah,

Despite her childhood she goes.

Once we get there–okay,

But by car or bus, it’s all day…

Barely turn around

And we’re outward bound,

Never more than a week have we stayed.

A middle-of-the driveway rock

Scraped on our exhaust (shock!)…

With a scrape and a roar

Broke what was fixed before,

But her brother jury-rigged a solution from stock!
