CAROLYN’S COMPOSITIONS

ON TOP: MONUMENTAL

WordPress Photo Challenge 4/18/2014:

 The WP Photo Challenge for April 18, 2014 is on top—your take on a monument (broadly defined)…anything can be monumental as long as it’s imbued with a shared sense of importance.

On top of Schoodic Mountain—215 years after the main character of my novel-under-construction climbed to the top. Madame de Leval wanted to view her promised land, land she had a tentative contract to purchase, up to 220,000 acres in Downeast Maine, Hancock and Washington Counties. This photo was taken when my husband, niece’s family, and I climbed Schoodic Mountain to see Madame’s promised land. It was a monumental climb for both Madame and myself.
