Tourist Trivia

Middle of the Rockies
by Jon Merk

She found the Rockies
"Underwhelming", she said.
So I didn't think she would be
very wowed
by a gray whale
coming right up to the boat,
or the way the clouds
draped themselves
atop Lone Cone,
 the eagle nest
with its bright-eyed baby,
or the sursurrant song of the sea.

"Next year, I'll have a stay-cation,"
she smiled,
and I thought that
a pretty good plan.
