Afternoon Snowshoe

Here’s one from a snowshoe up at Paradise in Mount Rainier National Park taken in January. I had been sick the day before so I wasn’t feeling 100% but it was sunny and warm (32°F) so there was no way I could pass it up.

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die” – John 11:25

The Point

Here’s one from down at the Point at the Dana Point Harbor taken just after sunrise. Great place to sit and watch the waves, boats, birds, and maybe even propose 😉

He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord – Proverbs 18:22

Dana Point Harbor Overlook

I was down in Orange County over New Years visiting family. I didn’t get out shooting much but I did get up early for sunrise one morning and headed to the Dana Point Harbor. There were some overcast skies which I thought would be cool for the blue hour.

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. – John 10:27-28

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.

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.
