Friends and family, destination Whiteface
For an extended adventure weekend
Squeezed in a glass gondola we ascend
Then we descend on boards and skis with grace
Between snow and board Julie found space
Frozen faces, tired legs, hours we spend
Yard sales, bumps, winds, and laughs we descend.
At the summit looks like another place.
Despite the noise from the front of the car
We made it down the longest eastern blue
And had a delicious locker room lunch
From open to close we really rode far
We had so much fun the time really flew
It was a great day with a great bunch.
(A Petrarchan Sonnet)
