Haiking haiku

Haiku Friday

Tuesday’s post: stairs hike.
Asked if you want back story.
The answer? Yes, please.

Starting with next ‘ku
Stanzas will match Tuesday’s post
One pic per stanza.

“Base of falls,” sign says.
Amicalola Falls rocks!
Steepness to first step.

Danger possible.
Remain on trails and the stairs.
But stairs may kill me. πŸ™‚

One seven five steps
“That can’t be that bad,” we say.
Sadly, we are wrong.

Step one is easy.
By one hundred we ask “Why?”
But so many more.

Do these stairs end? Oy…
It looks like not from here. Wow.
But sign said they do.

After bridge: this sign.
That many more? My heavens!
I need a quick nap.

After more stair steps.
I’m hot; not in a good way.
But on we will walk.

Do these stairs end? Oy.
Oh, I’ve already said that.
The end in sight! Yay!

Still I must rest. Phew!
I sit; Ed is a showoff. πŸ™‚
I’m now ready. Go!

We made it. We’re here!
I’m getting good at self-pics.
But contrast weird here.

Ed finds where we are.
I love this picture a lot.
Ed loves GPS.

Here we go again.
But this time it’s all downhill.
Easier this way.

A kind soul took this.
She worked hard for good image.
We were quite impressed.

Not over quite yet.
But still downhill we go. Ahhh…
I see the bottom.

And we made it. Fun!
We had a good time walking.
Sore calves next day though.

On our honeymoon.
We did this walk quite quickly.
Other things on minds. πŸ™‚

So there’s the story.
Thanks for reading my haiku.
Stay and visit, too?

    Yeah, that blog post was a bit long, wasn’t it? That’s what I get for using so many pictures in the first post about the walk. πŸ˜‰
