Haibun: A New Adventure

Cairngorms National Park

 

two whippets in winter jackets and snoods sniffing the ground on a mountain trail

 

Climbing the trail we sense the presence of mountain hare, footprints from walkers who look for adventure. Away from houses and roads, autumn brings her own perfume. Visitors old and new gaze at the views. Higher up where clouds end, the light is shining through.
