Mount Hood

I began to sweat in the icy white snow

The unfamiliar feeling was strange

I wanted some of my layers to go

Such a memorable trip to arrange

Attempting to take photos with numb hands

The rush, sliding down the powdery hills

How different it was from the beach and sand

The odd feeling of my spine filled with chills

My feet regaining feeling in the car

The foggy window perfect for drawing

Locals accustomed to the cold, bizarre

My cold surroundings were slowly thawing

Hot chocolate warming my cold fingers

The icy feeling of snow would linger
