Robert Burns was here
Looks like the foothills almostHe was a rambunctious five year-old twin with a sister.I invited he and his other three siblings for a river hike. This time of year the water is low and the sandbars are huge, sometimes for miles with minimal wading.I had pointed out a few items I always looked at when hiking and told a few tales of great finds.Soon his backpack became lower and lower, full of some of the best of finds. Almost anything I pointed at was a frenzy to get it in their sacks, but he often was the first.I didn't realize this until he was getting clear behind the pack with his pack too heavy to carry.I was impressed at my influence in choices, and always enjoyed taking his group to give relief to his parents. His older sister finally told me and I ended up carrying all back to my van for him.He kept having me stop to show me a special treasure he knew I would like.
