A red sun rises
A deep scarlet eye in the sky
Drip drip drip
Droplets fall
The wind calls

We shoulder the packs
On our backs
Down we go
Cautious and slow
Down a path unknown

The sun ascends
Behind gray clouds
Hail falls
In golf size balls
Across a bridge
Frozen waters, slippery ice
Through a path unknown

A white blanket
Covers the sky
Crystal flakes drop
Into soft powder
Our frozen foot in front of the other
Further up and further in
Up a path unknown

The sun descends
Behind blue mountains
Stumbling down we all lie
With a fire before us
Giving warmth to our skins

Behind us our shadows fall
A bird calls
The last rays of light
Descend behind clouds of white

Same adventure
Between paths unknown
