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

Stick Up

Here’s a long exposure from the Colonial Creek Campground in North Cascades National Park, Washington.

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

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

River Loop Trail

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

I tell you, whoever publicly acknowledges me before others, the Son of Man will also acknowledge before the angels of God. But whoever disowns me before others will be disowned before the angels of God. – Luke 12:8-9

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
