The Steinach Operation

A place of semi-natural vigor.

NaPoWriMo Day 20

The Mules Are In The Details

To work off some bad energy
I went on a solo hike up in the hills.
It had just stopped raining, and the
forest air was crisp. I was hoping
to see a moose or a bear lumbering
around, maybe reconnect with nature
a bit. It was either this or a meditation
class at the Y; I thought this would
be more manly. I ended up seeing
a few chipmunks, but that's about it.
I brought a pair of binoculars, and when
I looked across the valley, more trees,
just farther away. I kept scanning the
ridge--The Mules are indistinguishable
from elk at this distance.
