A dragon lives forever but not so little boys
Painted wings and giant rings make way for other toys.
One grey night it happened, jackie paper came no more
And puff that mighty dragon, he ceased his fearless roar
His head was bent in sorrow, green scales fell like rain,

Puff no longer went to play along the cherry lane.
Without his life-long friend, puff could not be brave,
So puff that mighty dragon sadly slipped into his cave.
Oh!Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called honah lee
Peter, Paul, and Mary

Wow, I love these pictures so much that I am giving it it's own blog entry. As you get to the zenith of the Camelback hike you come upon a currently dry hole called The Vortex. This is me climbing in and out of it. New experiences, things you never believed you could do, setting the bar higher, scaring the hell out of the guides; all in one morning hike at the Resort.

The first time at the ridge I did not know going down the vortex was an option. The second time camelback was CLOSED. Which was rather disappointing since we wanted to take our reunion pictur there......Guesss what I`ll do in June....going down the vortex.

Maybe next time I'll be brave enough to go into the vortex? Even without it was my favorite hike :) said...

Thanks for posting these pictures I'm going to be there in two weeks and I'm scared to death of what awaits me - but your photos are so beautiful, maybe I'll end up loving BLR and not want to leave!

I loved Camelback. I wasn't brave enough to go down in the vortex. I didn't think I'd be able to get back out!
