Summerlin & Bighorn Peaks - 11/13/11
There is a mountain in Las Vegas
They call it 'Summerlin Peak'
And it's been wanted to be climbed
By many, I know I'm one.
My daypack is complete
With water and some nuts.
My boots are roughly soled
The better for steep rock.
Now, the only thing a hiker needs
Is a GPS and a walking stick
And the only time that he's satisfied
Is when he's on the top.
Oh, Nature, tell your children
To do what I have done;
Spend your days on high trails and aching muscles
Heading for the risin' sun.
Well, I've got one foot on a rock
the other reaching steeply up,
I'm goin' up to Summerlin
To conquer that peak and view.
Well, there is a mountain in Las Vegas
They call it Summerlin Peak
And it's now been attained by a group;
And me, I'm one of the seven.
