Mt. Bliss (A Friday Fictioneer Story)
It's Friday Fictioneer day compliments of Madison Woods at http://madisonwoods.wordpress.com/flash-fiction/desolation/ Read and post your flash fiction here and on her site. This week's breathtaking photo is by Doug MacIlroy, from Hawaii.

Ethan adjusted his backpack. “Ready?”
