Friday Fictioneer: Colorado Mountain

PHOTO PROMPT © Sandra Crook

“Where is this train going again?”

“Town of Silver Springs, abandoned silver mine now a tourist town.”


“What are you doing?”

“It’s 8 in the morning in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. I’m cold so I’m wearing my wool poncho.”

“You will be the only one dressed for winter. It’s summer.”

“I don’t care I’m cold.”

“You’ll have to carry it with you all day.”

“I don’t care, I’m cold now.”

“Find. Whatever.”

It was a lovely summer day, on the top of the mountain where it was 40F.

And I was the only one who was warm. ;0)

True story. The conversation isn’t exactly correct, but I was the only one prepared for that day.
