Each step sunk deeper than the one before. The proud snow drifts balanced happily above my knees; I couldn’t help but smile at the early Christmas present. Kicking fresh steps into the powder, I progressed wide-eyed toward Apollo Overlook.
Staring out, I couldn’t help but feel a sense of melancholy. The world was showing me its best. Did mother nature know? Surely. I closed my eyes and imagined the moment with those I no longer get an opportunity to share and discover the world with. Opening my eyes, the sun continued the daily journey across the southern sky. Not ready to come back to reality, I continued heavily up the untouched path…
…quietly toward Myrtle Point.
