I slowly amble toward the Beartooth

Range looming above ten thousand feet

and gaze at gray gigantic granitic uplifts

carved with glaciated and snowy cirques,

when I begin to feel a kind of syncline

elevating my mind ever upwards to the

highest summit bearing the name of

Granite Peak that rises to 12,799 feet,

no place higher in all of wild Montana

buoying my spirit above the plains.
