"Climbing Over Rocky Mountain"~an Ode to Wolverine Canyon

"Climbing Over Rocky Mountain"

Climbing over rocky mountain,


Skipping rivulet and fountain,


Passing where the weeping willows quiver

Passing where the willows quiver,



By the ever-rolling river,


Swollen with the summer rain,


The summer rain.



Threading long and leafy mazes



Dotted with unnumbered daisies,



Dotted, dotted with unnumbered daisies;





Scaling rough and rugged passes,



Climb the hardy little lasses,


Till the bright sea-shore they gain!



Scaling rough and rugged passes,


Climb the hardy little lasses,

Till the bright sea-shore they gain!



Let us gaily tread the measure,


Make the most of fleeting leisure,


Hail it as a true ally,


Though it perish by-and-by.

Hail it as a true ally,



Though it perish by-and-by.

Words and Lyrics from "The Pirates of Penzance", by Gilbert and Sullivan

  3. Querida amiga mia,

    Que fotos tan lindas nos has dado hoy! Se ve, que todos ustedes, lo pasaron muy bien ;)

    Las ninas se ven tan lindas con sus vestidos y sandalias... el rio, se ve tan calmante - me imagino que el dia fue, absolutamente, perfecto!

    Marqueta, el delantal (apron) que tu tenias puesto, lo hicistes tu?

    Dejame saber...

  5. Thanks for the sweet comments, everyone! The apron was made by simply cutting a sturdy thrift-store jumper straight up the back, hemming the raw edges, and adding a zipper. Easy peasy!
