Another beautiful park that inspires and tells its own story. We have hiked here many times. I wrote the following poem inspired by the photographs. Hope you enjoy them!
All in formation – sandstone red
Push forth and reach up to the sky
Your wondrous beauty does bespeak
Of other times and lives gone by.
What other feet – this path have tread
What loves – what sorrows have they known
What tears they cried – what thoughts of joy
Were shared beneath your wall of stone.
Whatever must have come before
A secret only you have kept
And as I slowly walk away
Only you know here – what tears I wept.
