Sspringw-342610_1280This quote is from the story “The Mountain”. Third graders Pat and Crazy Eddie are getting a bad case of spring fever and decide to enjoy April by climbing a mountain close to their homes in Idaho.

Pat explains that the mountain would call to him.

“Pat! Pat! Come climb me! It will be fun! And I won’t try to kill you, as I do some folks!”

On an April Saturday at the age of eight, I learned that mountains don’t always tell the truth.
