What's in a Name?
Mt. Oglethorpe to Katahdin
is almost like a prayer, names mystical,
Saddleback, Goose Eye, Lafayette,
Grandfather, Greylock, even a St. Guadens!
Culvers Gap, Hawk Mountain,
all north of Harper's Ferry,
Big Meadows, Shenandoah, The Priest,
Peaks of Otter, Blackhorse Gap, Laural Fork Gorge,
Standing Indian, Blood Mountian
just a handful plucked from a trail ancient
awaiting exploration, appreciation,

This is with a brief nod for "Imaginary Garden of Real Toads - Transoforming Friday with Nature's Wonders - Mt. Katahdin" which is the northern beginning of the Appalachian Trail.
