    The Mountain

    The sun beat down with no relief.
    the sweat dripped down my chin.
    I looked up at the mountain so tall
    and let the journey begin.

    It must have been a hundred miles wide
    and at least ten times that tall
    as I climbed my way up the rugged terrain
    and hoped I wouldn’t fall.

    Shrieks and growls and echoes came,
    probably lions and tigers and bears,
    their eyes lurking in the bushes all around
    — I’d just have to stay aware.

    Rattle snakes slithered in and out of rocks,
    their fangs thirsty for flesh.
    Vultures circle over head
    to take whatever’s left.

  • Teens share evacuation stories

    Now that the smoke has cleared from the Los Alamos air and the Las Conchas Fire is almost completely contained, I took a few minutes to remember that scary day of being told to evacuate.
    Our family of four had been living here for a little over a year and had never experienced an evacuation due to fire, or tornado or hurricane, for that matter. But because the smoke was so thick on the morning of June 27, we had already decided to leave the area before we received the recorded telephone evacuation message.
