There once was a man who went campin’.
He walked ‘til his legs they were crampin’.
He came from Boulder,
and now feels much older,
from walking to “Atlasta Cabin”.

Author’s Note: 
Thank you to fellow challenge contributor, Barbara Hirokawa Gal, for letting me use her photo in my post.


    1. Thanks! I don’t usually write limericks (I don’t think I’m very good at them!), but someone challenged me to write a limerick today…so I did. 🙂 Thanks for your encouragement and your visit! 🙂


    1. Thanks, De. The woman who took the photo told me that the old mining cabin has been in the owner’s family (not hers) since before 1900. And it’s called “Atlasta Cabin”. I couldn’t resist using the name in my poem. This photo and poem were featured in the recent exhibit in an art gallery in Denver. 🙂
