The Glorious Mountain

Mount Hutt

Canterbury

Patrick, 10

The glacial snow looks like a fluffy polar bear. The plains behind me look plush and jagged. I climb higher and higher up the towering mountain. Every footstep is a new patch of feathery snow. Everything is beautiful up here. The rugged summit is binding. I keep going. It feels like the mountain is whispering to me and I feel alive. I feel like I am a King.
