breathing hard at the top
of the switchbacks

—Mike Farley

About the author: I live with my wife Shirlee on a cattle ranch near the little ski town of Red Lodge, Montana, and have been loving and writing haiku for several years now. I draw my inspiration from the images of the high-plains, mountains, weather, wildlife, livestock, ranch work and outdoor recreation which surround me daily.

    Just love timberline and switchbacks; and you managed to fit this all into one haiku, phew!

    I can feel my own breathlessness too.

    all my best Mike!
