Cascading Falls

Last weekend we hiked the Silver Falls Trail in Mount Rainier National Park. I’ve done this trail a few times now but there’s always something new to shoot like this waterfall. I’ve shot it before but not looking down it as it cascades into the Ohanapecosh River.

“When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things” – Mark 6:34

Maybe Next Time Maple Creek Camp

During our hike to Stevens Creek in Mount Rainier National Park we decided to go a little farther once we made it to the creek. So, we continued on to Maple Creek Camp. Unfortunately we didn’t make it and it wasn’t for lack of trying. There were numerous downed trees and my wife and I were each carrying a kid. There are only so many trees you can carefully climb over and crawl under before it gets annoying. Anyways, here’s a picture from the trail.

“Overhearing what they said, Jesus told him, ‘Don’t be afraid; just believe'” – Mark 5:36

Stevens Creek

This is Stevens Creek in Mount Rainier National Park. The hike to here is about 1.4 miles making it 2.8 mile out and back. The beginning of the trail is fairly steep and you’ll have to it at the end of the hike so make sure you save some water for the end. It’s not too bad though. My four year old did it.

“On hearing this, Jesus said to them, ‘It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners” – Mark 2:17

Rural Sumner

Another one of some rural property in Sumner, Washington.

“Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age'” – Matthew 28:18-20

Cape Arago Lighthouse

Cape Arago Lighthouse in Oregon. There was a bridge to the lighthouse but it was removed in 2013 when the island the lighthouse sits on was given back to the Confederates Tribes. Too bad you can’t get up close to it but still a cool lighthouse.

“Jesus replied. ‘But I say to all of you: From now on you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven'” – Matthew 26:64

Stevens Creek Trail

On Memorial Day we went for our first hike of the season in Mount Rainier National Park. We did the Stevens Creek Trail which is a 1.4 mile out and back that takes you by two waterfalls. One was full of downed trees and the other one you could get right up to. It was good to be back on the trail hearing the sounds and smelling the smells of the forest.

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.'” – Matthew 25:40

Barbed Wire Fence

A barbed wire fence from a farm house in Sumner Washington. That’s all I have to say about that.

“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come” – Matthew 24:42
