Snowy Trail

Here’s another shot from the Trail of the Shadows taken on Christmas Eve. The trail goes around a marshy area and I spotted a standing tree (not pictured) that had been gnawed on by a beaver. Keeps your eyes peeled for it if you do the hike.

I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. – John 10:16

Snowy Trail of Shadows

Creek crossing at the Trail of Shadows in Longmire (Mount Rainier National Park). The water in this area has a brownish color due to all the minerals and there even some hot springs along the trail.

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. – John 8:36

Aspen Trail

Here are some Aspen trees from the Valley of Five Lakes trail in Jasper National Park, Canada. We had little ones with us so we only saw three of the lakes before they got too tired. Great trail though.

No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them, and I will raise them up at the last day – John 6:44

Federation Forest Boardwalk

Here’s a tip, be very careful when wearing a pair of Chuck T’s and walking across a soggy-wooden boardwalk. I almost had my feet go out from under me multiple times. I might as well been walking on ice with the amount of traction I had. Baby steps got me across. Anyway, this is a shot from Federation Forest State Park, Washington.

Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. – John 6:35

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

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
