Sixth Bridge

This is Sixth Bridge located in Jasper National Park, Canada. Even though there weren’t that many people around it seemed as though every time I’d almost be done with the long exposure someone would walk into the frame. I don’t mind waiting but it happened a multiple times and then one guy decided to sit in the middle of the bridge and read a map. I just needed sixty seconds! I guess it was a good lesson in patience.

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. – John 3:17

On the Thunder Creek Trail

The Thunder Creek Trail in North Cascades National Park is a nice flat trail (for the first two miles) that goes along…wait for it…Thunder Creek. I think it’s about 2 miles in before you hit a wooden bridge that crosses the river. I think it’s a good goal to shoot for if you have little ones. We went a little farther than the bridge but then it starts to go uphill. It wasn’t too steep but you got to keep things fun and exciting when hiking with kids. Steep usually doesn’t meet that criteria. Plus they have to be able to hike back and there’s only so many kids you can carry 🙂

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life – John 3:16

Along the Snoqualmie Falls Trail

A fall scene from the Snoqualmie Falls Trail. Enjoy.

He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—

Colonial Creek Campground

Here’s one from the Colonial Creek Campground in North Cascades National Park, Washington. There are a couple of walk-in sites that are right next to this creek and others in the trees along the Diablo Lake shore. Pretty nice.

For the Son of Man in his day will be like the lightning, which flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other. Luke 17:24

Sourdough Ridge Trail

Here’s one from the Sourdough Ridge Trail in Mount Rainier National Park taken over the summer. I was up in the Sunrise area a couple weekends ago and it definitely didn’t look like this. Visability was poor and it was pouring down rain. I did see three bucks though.

No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. – Luke 16:13

Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much – Luke 16:10

Split Rock

This boulder with a big crack in it caught me eye when I was hiking the Thunder Creek Trail in North Cascades National Park. I didn’t get up close to investigate the crack but it would be a cool place for a geocache or DB Cooper’s loot (definitely something to keep an eye out for when hiking in Washington).

But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked. – Luke 12:48

Lower Sunwapta Falls

Three waterfalls make up Sunwapta Falls. The first one is right near the parking lot. Naturally there were a bunch of people around which I try to avoid in my landscapes. So, we hiked down to the other two falls. This is the second one on the way down.

You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him – Luke 12:40
