Longmire Icicles

Back on Christmas Eve 2016 we made a trip to Longmire in Mount Rainier National Park for some family fun in the snow. As we pulled in I noticed these pretty cool icicles coming off the roof of the administration building.

Sunwapta River

Here’s one from the rocky shores of the Sunwapta River taken in Jasper National Park in Canada.

And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day – John 6:39-40

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

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

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

Shores of Medicine Lake

Here’s one from Medicine Lake in Jasper National Park, Canada taken this past September.

This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God – John 3:19-21

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

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
