River Loop Trail

Here’s one from the River Loop Trail just outside of the North Cascades National Park Visitors Center in Newhaven, Washington.

Golden Sunset

One stop we made before heading into Jasper was in Golden, Canada. We only stayed for the night but I was able to enjoy a nice sunset down by the Kicking Horse River

There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs. – Luke 12:2-3

Sunset at Sheep Lake

Sunset from Sheep Lake, WA. The trail that goes to the lake is part of the Pacific Crest Trail and I met a guy from Germany that had been hiking since April. Amazing that he’s made it that far. Only about 200 miles left 🙂 On another note, don’t set up your tent next to the Pacific Crest Trail. I unfortunately had to because I couldn’t get a better spot. The bad part was that at random hours of the night hikers would trudge along the trail right next to my tent. Being half asleep it sounded like I was going to get trampled by a heard of elk! I didn’t get much sleep.

He replied, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.” – Luke 11:28

Sheep Lake

I took my (almost) five year old backpacking for the first time to Sheep Lake just outside of Mount Rainier National Park. It’s a 1.8 mile hike in and pretty popular spot so get there early if you plan on camping on the weekend.

Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters. – Luke 11:23

Liberty Bell Mountain

Here’s one coming from Washington Pass in North Cascades National Park. The mountain pictured is Liberty Bell Mountain elevation 5,477 ft (1,669m) and that winding road is Highway 20.

So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. – Luke 11:9-10

Thunder Creek Trail

Here’s one from the Thunder Creek Trail in North Cascades National Park. We did a 4 mile out and back to the 4th of July trail junction (I believe the trail is a total of 12 miles) with the little ones.

He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” – Luke 10:27

Bow Lake

Just got back from a trip to the amazing Jasper National Park, Canada. Plenty of awesome sights along the way like Bow Lake which is in Banff National Park.

He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. – Luke 10:2

Bronc Diving

I think the Olympics needs a new event: Bronc Diving Tokyo 2020 🙂 This is from the Blue Moon rodeo in Columbia Falls, Montana.

Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it. What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit their very self? – Luke 9:23-35
