Leap

“Just don’t break your arm,” Jessica implores (something he’s done twice before) as Hunter walks back to get a run at a berm he plans to fly from.

 

“I’m ready,” I signal. He wants me to catch a picture.

 

The trail along Orchard Gulch isn’t long and soon we’re back at Rocky Canyon Road, a mile or so from where we parked. “Where do you want to eat?” I ask as we stroll along the gravel, per the tacit day hike deal.

 

“That was kind of perfect,” I remark to Jessica as we reach the Jeep. The sights, temperature, distance, all very nice.

 

“Yes it was.”

 

I will leave with a final thought from P.J. Pefley:

 

“I have very little confidence in legislatures, especially where a majority is made up of any one party. Under the lash they would be very likely to disfranchise any man that did not agree with the majority sentiments; on that it would be as complete in its inquisitorial powers as the holy Spanish Inquisition ever was in its palmiest state.”¹
