Resting in the High Places
My youngest son and I joined my sister-in-law and brother-in-law in Little Lakes Valley for a camping adventure. Now don't pass that link by! Click on it...because I want you to see the awesome beauty of the area. (We hiked that trail.)

Are we in Narnia?
Awesome beauty everywhere.
Rock Creek is just a few steps from our camp.
Can you see the trail?
When I first set foot on this trail my eyes misted over, as it reminded me of how "Much Afraid" walked with the Shepherd through the High Places in the book, Hinds Feet on High Places.
My son took up a new sport. Extreme Rock-Hopping. He found several creative routes of crossing the stream...putting his life in danger...(he only brought one pair of shoes!)
He coaxed me into taking one of his routes. I made it...but my heart was palpitating! I didn't like the pointed rock section.
"Just keep your momentem going, mom, and you'll be fine."
I prefer logs to rocks.
Dylan is walking Samuel. The two puppies were discovering the world outside their backyard, for the very first time.
Samuel (the Huskie) chased the sticks we tossed into the water. Maggie chased Samuel into the water! Suddenly the ground dropped off and she started swimming! She loved it!
Samuel's first step into the water.
Uncle K watches as Maggie and Samuel play at Heart Lake.
Maggie and Samuel are crate trained. Each evening, at bedtime, they easily entered their crates and seemed happy for a rest after a long active day.
God's Christmas decorations.

Dylan, who loves to eat, took this picture. Tri-tip!

Thank you, M and K for a great trip!
