’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves,
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
“Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch...!”
Lewis Carroll (from Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, 1872)
My wife takes a walk through "Wonderland," realm of the Red Queen.
Oak Creek Spire (a.k.a. Rabbit Ears) lies ahead, and is reached by crossing
perilous slickrock and a narrow canyon filled with cantankerous cacti.
