A Song from the Grand

578

So PL just got off the Grand Canyon, whose experimental September flows of 8,000 cfs made it ideal for everything from surfing and sucking suds to gobbling gourmet cuisine from PL partner Ceiba Adventures. To shine some light on the re-entry-to-civilization problems those emerging from the Big Ditch deal with, following are a couple of musical ditties thrown together by participant Dana Birke from Boulder — just in time for an abrupt return to an early Colorado winter…

A Few of My Favorite Things

Kayaks and duckies and rafts just for sittin’
Stand-Ups and Horseshoes and sweet beach badminton
Dura-flame camp logs around which we’d sing
These are a few of my favorite things

Frisbees at red wall and folks tossin’ horse shoes
Beers at 10;30 and each night a new booze
Fresh water falls that just turn into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When the shitter’s full
When the duck swims
When I’m scared of heights
I simply remember these Grand Canyon things
And everything seems alright

Girls in bikinis and guys in sarongs
Yodeling for certain the greatest of songs
Dinners we’d make that were fit for a king
These are a few of my favorite things

When we lose beer
When our knees ache
When douche bags snag our sites
I simply rememeber these Grand canyon things
And everything seems alright

Yes, I simply remember these Grand Canyon things
And everything seems alright
