Hello friends! I hope this finds you all very well. As you may recall from my last post, I just spent a few days camping. As I prepared for the trip, I imagined cold winter nights, swampy camp coffee, and, well . . . frigidity. :o) While some of those things were true, I must say that the trip was quite lovely. Here are a few of the details:
WHO: Myself, Allie, and Tom (Allie’s boyfriend). While my official title and purpose was chaperone, that did not stop me from thoroughly enjoying myself!
WHY: For two dear-hearts to visit without having to traverse many miles of U.S. highways. 🙂
WHERE: Jean Petit State Park
What We Saw:
Beautiful sandstone rocks.
Lovely winter shrubbery.
20th century graffiti. 🙂 Mr. Hamilton carved his name in 1916.
Bear Cave and unique rock structures. While walking about this area, I was amazed at the evident power and creativity of God.
Genuine Native American artwork.
Amazing trees and great heights.
And so much more!
“Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty. Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain: Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind: Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire: Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.” Psalms 104:1-4
If armed with good company, plenty of blankets, an electric heater, a fine fire pit, panty-hose stuffed with coffee, helpful hands, indoor plumbing, and good humor . . .
winter camping can be a lovely time! 🙂
May you all have a blessed week!
