I am a romantic; stories and color and not just the taste of the cake buy how was it made and with what? What makes the cream linger on your lips and the strawberry dance among the buds of your tongue? The layers of fluff or the soft crunch of an excellent crust: A great desert follows discipline, patience, and tastes like a reward.


We snowshoed an hour up, collected our wood, prepared for a -20 night. Once the stove got burning, cold day fell into a sauna night; with music flowing in and happy energy out; it answered a piece of the Mystery Puzzle. Is the reward worth the effort? Yes, everytime. One comes down the mountain a bit changed. More evolved.
