I was hiking the trail this morning but also having a great experience of worship. I hit the trail at 7:00 and at 7:10 I came upon the view in the photo below. The clouds below me reminded me of the rainbow I have in the clouds – God’s promise of forgiveness and redemption in Jesus.
I had a special of singing – my voice is not great but it does allow me to express my love to God. I realized that I have not heard group singing in over 7 weeks – I really miss hearing voices coming together in harmony and praise. I also had a powerful time of prayer as I walked. Being Fathers Day my children and their children were heavy on my heart.
Lots of climbing this morning! With God’s grace I hiked my longest day yesterday (25 miles). Ended at Cove Mt Shelter (mile 749). Because of the elevation change today I will be much less today – but I plan to enjoy the mountains.
I have not been able to post because of the lack of cell coverage. I have set up camp – it is 6:00 and I made it to mile 766 and Thunder Hill Shelter. As I was setting up my tent a couple about my age came into camp with bananas and cold drinks – trail blessing brought to shelter! This was a first for me. What a blessing indeed.
Two other photos – one is a view from Black Rock about 5 miles from camp and the other is called the Guillotine (it reminds me of the Indiana Jones movie.
