Double Rainbow

If the eye of the hurricane is calm and peaceful. What’s the eye of the rainbow like? This is was taken at Beauvert Lake in Jasper, Canada.

Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them – John 3:36

Fall Reflections

Back in October I was cruising around Mount Rainier National Park. It was nice and sunny and I thought Reflection Lake would be a good stop. I hadn’t been there in a while so I headed up through the Paradise Visitor’s Center but the road across the valley to Reflection Lake was closed. Luckily I caught a Ranger just as he was leaving for the day and found out the lower road was open. Thanks Mr. Ranger!

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. – John 1:14

Medicine Lake

Here’s one from Medicine Lake up in Jasper National Park, Canada. You hit this lake as you head to Maligne Lake. The water level was pretty low so you could see tons of animal tracks crossing the lake. It would have been cool to camp out for a while and see what passes by. I would suspect you’d see some moose. Just make sure you got a long lens and mud boots.

Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? – Luke 14:34

Avalanche Lake

This is Avalanche Lake in Glacier National Park. It’s a 4.6 mile hike to the lake and back. I’ve done this hike numerous times usually with friends that haven’t been to the park before. You pop out of some trees when you get to the lake and the view is amazing every time.

“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these” – Mark 12:30-31

Lake McDonald

Just got back from a trip to Montana. We usually head there once a year to visit family and every time we visit I try and make it to Glacier National Park. Here’s one from Lake McDonald.

“‘Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt among yourselves, and be at peace with each other'” – Mark 9:50

Shipwreck of the Peter Iredale

This is all that is left of the Peter Iredale which went aground on October 26, 1906 at the Clatsop Spit in Oregon. There were no casualties and the ship was actually pretty intact but it got stuck in the sand so most of it was sold for scrap. If you’re interested you can read more about it here: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Iredale

“but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved” – Matthew 24:13

Daffodils

Tulips get all the attention this time of year in the Pacific Northwest but don’t forget about those daffodils. Enjoy those golden beauties.

Shipwrecked Sunset

I camped at Fort Stevens, Oregon last weekend. Pretty cool place with tons of bike riding trails, old military structures, and even a shipwreck (Peter Iredale). Pretty awesome.

“Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.'” – Matthew 19:26

Deep Lake

Deep Lake is located in Nolte State Park, Washington. It’s stocked all year for those who like fishing and there’s a nice hiking trail (about 1.5 miles) that goes around the lake.

“Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven” – Matthew 10:32

Tide Pool Sunset

One of the many cool things about Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach, Oregon are the tide pools that you’ll find when the tide is low. There is tons of sea life which is always fun for the kids and they make for cool subjects at sunset.

“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” – Matthew 6:19-21
