Failed Attempt on Lookout Mountain

Last Sunday I made a second attempt at climbing Lookout Mountain.  However, a recent snow storm had covered the rocky trail near the top of the mountain in treacherous slush.

I slipped and stumbled to my knees several times and then, overcome by a sudden fit of common sense, I gave up the ascent and made a cautious retreat down the mountain.

You vanquished me this time, O Mountain!  But happier trails will come in May.
