Hiking Haiku

lofty peak beckons
rising steeply to goal
marvel at scene


てまねき の みね に とうたつ ぜっけい や

Hiking is an activity that is as much about the trip as the goal. The experience of beginning at the bottom of a tough trail only to conquer the obstacle and reach the goal at the top is extraordinary. However, it is rivaled by the satisfaction of the journey to include the magnificent views on the way up as well as the brilliant landscape discovered at the top.
