Sierra Club Song
When the sun’s behind the mountain and the frost is in the air,
We’re up and off and hiking on our way;
We don’t know where we’re going and we don’t supremely care,
But we’ll be there when the evening ends the day.
Up the rocky slopes we clamber and then down the other side,
Through forests and across the rocky streams,
Through a land of bright enchantment where the vision opens wide,
And we find the wide horizon of our dreams.
—in JOSEPH HAZARD, Pacific Crest Trails, 1946
