Mount Hutt

Mount Hutt

Canterbury

Fritz, 10

I watch the elevated mountain, it's beautiful. I start climbing, birds start singing to me, and I catch a little whiff of the natural aroma. I take a little break to drink some water, refreshing. I lean against a tree with my hand, it feels rough like concrete. After my break I feel so energetic that I start running down the path. It is dusty but I still keep running. All to soon my hike is finished. I am back where I started. My feet and legs hurt, but I still feel free.
