More rivers and streams, more gigantic mountains of snow, and now we have pine trees! How far we are from
the desert! As we walk through this dreamland, Beatrice and I write another skit, this time to honor the Kitchen Crew. It's
based on the Astaire/Rodgers "Let's Call The Whole Thing Off." We love it so much we rehearse it over and over:
"You say po-tay-to, and I say po-tah-to..." But at camp Beatrice and Benedict fight as only they can. Why? Well,
the marchers are invited to sleep in beds again tonight. One of us wants to go to a condo, the other wants to stay in camp.
What a stew! But we end up close as two peas in a pod.
This day is, literally and figuratively,
the crest, the apex, the pinnacle of our Walk. The GPM has climbed to its crowning glory - the Continental Divide, 12,000
feet, Loveland Pass, Colorado. Shouting and singing and hugging and crying and endless picture taking... What joy! To be HERE
after all weve been through! Will we ever forget this magic moment in time and space, this milestone on the Great Peace March?
