Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago



Driving along freeway 10 towards the borders of Nevada

Way back late June ’01 to spend the July 4 holiday there

A truly hot sultry space twas upon crossing the borders

Where temp stood at 115 Fahrenheit exacerbating

The dreary looks of backward small towns on the borders


Yet we went on to pass along the famed Las Vegas

And onwards passed by a native American site

To quench our thirst and buy some ethnic stuff

Drove onwards again till we reached Lake Hoover


Spending thus almost six days on flat bottom big boats

We almost a hundred peoples all a family circle

Swam, did boat-ride, snorkel & dived, barbecued

Beers after beers to quench amid sultry days

Yet at night star-gazed the wondrous cloudless sky

Sang the blues & country & rock the day too


There was no boredom at all across the many days

Fun with our circle from babes and kids to adults

Spiced our moments with tons of stories

At times blended with arguments on social issues


Till it was time to go and cruise the same hot freeways

Temp now climbing up to 120 Fahrenheit like stove

Yet we drove on back and passed by Las Vegas again

Hit we were by sand dunes gushed by gales

But we survived and went on motoring back to California

Till finally resting we were all to exhilarate the wonderment

Of the Nevada trail so pregnant with frills and funs
