Sisters

Mount Liar As I neared the top of the mountain, I spotted something shiny. Stopping to see what was reflecting light back at me, I was surprised to spot an old, disposable camera sitting in a pile of leaves. Since my pack was light, anyway, I wrapped the camera in the plastic bag I had…

Ephemeral
