I am "The Happy Wanderer"!

And who wouldn't be happy with such
glorious places as this in which
to wander?
~*~
I love to go a-wandering,
Along the mountain track,
And as I go, I love to sing,
My knapsack on my back.
~
Chorus:
Val~deri, Val~dera,
Val~deri,
Val~dera~ha~ha~ha~ha~ha
Val~deri,Val~dera
My knapsack on my back.
~
I love to wander by the stream
That dances in the sun,
So joyously it calls to me
"Come! Join my happy song!"
~
I wave my hat to all I meet,
And they wave back to me,
And blackbirds call so loud and sweet
From ev'ry green wood tree.
~
High overhead, the skylarks wing,
They never rest at home
But just like me, they love to sing,
As o'er the world we roam.
~
Oh, may I go a-wandering
Until the day I die!
Oh, may I always laugh and sing,
Beneath God's clear blue sky!
~*~
And Gentleman Farmer and I did
go a-wandering ~
to
"The Mountain"


Mt. Rainier


The *mountain track*


Some wildflowers...

still in bloom...

in October!



No blackbirds calling loud and sweet...

but we did see a ptarmigan in the *green wood tree*





We did wander *by the stream dancing in the sun*


"Oh, may I go a~wandering
Until the day I die!
Oh, may I always laugh and sing,
Beneath God's clear blue sky!"

"I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From whence shall my help come."
Psalm 121:1
