At the Peak of Ancient History (Tony’s Story)

Tony is one of the rocks on a Rock Trek through Europe. This is how his story begins (by Eileen S.).

Tony is a small, smooth, dark blue rock with a red zig-zag pattern. Grumpy, he seemed to have a chip on his shoulder (no pun intended) about being small and some rocks obviously regarded him as a stone. He looked fierce and wary, as though the red patterns were flames that licked upwards and engulfed him – just like a volcano. So Tony was, of course, destined to be placed in Sorrento, on the top of Mount Vesuvius!

When Tony is found, the finder will have climbed over a thousand feet through dark, dusty ash and cinders, to arrive at the most awe-inspiring panoramic view of the Bay of Naples, the island of Capri and the ruined ancient city of Pompeii that lies a thousand feet below, encased in silent, grey volcanic rock.

Here Tony lies, beside the dark deep crater.  It seems a fitting end to the trek.
… to be continued.
