Lunch Break at a Meadow

If you squinted your eyes, the meadow could have looked like the Serengeti from those nature shows on the Discovery Channel: tall, light grass all around (though perhaps a shade too green). Years ago, this was exactly where the greying professor had seen a mountain lion. But with open eyes, the mountain meadow looked liked any other meadow: pretty but not something that makes a unique imprint on one’s memory. We stood where the lion had been, imagining scenes from television of lions crouched in the high grass. We hiked on; we had a few more days in the wilderness. I guess for now, I’ll just have to squint and picture Planet Earth™.
