Princess Of The Mountain

My Protector In A Moat Of Clouds

Working on the summit and being one of the few females, I frequently find myself as ‘one of the guys’. While I might act like one the guys from time to time, my mind still tends to have girlie daydreams. This morning was no exception as I walked out onto the observation deck for my first observation. Looking out to the horizon, the day was just beginning as light filtered over the horizon. Below me, a sea of clouds obstructed the valley’s below my castle. From the top of the tower with longer hair, I could be Rapunzel stranded by a moat of condensed water vapor. This morning there was an added flare to this vision. With few mountain tops poking through the clouds, I was protected by an alligator. What more could a weather observing Princess ask for?
