Sunrise Visitor’s Center

Here’s a shot from inside the Sunrise Visitor’s Center in Mount Rainier National Park.

Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth – John 4:23-24

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

Federation Forest Cedars

Here are some good old cedar trees from Federation Forest State Park, Washington.

Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him – John 3:14-15

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

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—

Road to Mount Rainier

Back in October we had a good stretch of rain followed by a short break so we packed up the kids and headed up to Rainier. There was no way we were passing up a sunny fall day in the park.

In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. – John 1:4-5

Snoqualmie Falls BW

A couple weeks ago on a nice and sunny falld day we made a trip out to Snoqualmie Falls, Washington. I haven’t been there in about 7 years and was sad to see that it’s now a lot harder to get down to the base of the falls. Don’t worry, I decided to be a good example for the kids and stayed up on the boardwalk.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. – John 1:1-2

Christine Falls

I cruised around Mount Rainier National Park back in October and my first stop was Christine Falls. I’ve driven over these falls numerous times but I’ve never stopped to check it out. I’m glad I did as it is pretty impressive with the bridge coming over top if it. There was even a couple that had just gotten married right near where I took this shot. What a back drop that must have been!

For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost – Luke 19:10

Wheat Sunset

Sunset from my friend’s wheat farm in Eastern Washington taken over the summer.

Support your local wheat farmer and buy some bread, wheat thins, and wheaties 😀 I was never a wheaties fan but their box was always cool.

Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it – Luke 18:17
