An anniversary get-away

   For our 31st anniversary this year, we were blessed to be able to go camping in the White Mountains for a few days.  Thank you to all at home who “held the fort” and looked after younger ones while we were gone!

While there, we did a number of small hikes to some very pretty waterfalls.

   We also did two longer hikes, each 6-7 miles with 2500-2700 feet of vertical ascent.  The first was over two peaks (Mount Jackson and Mount Webster) and the other was a hike up Mount Eisenhower.  The trail up Mount Eisenhower was well maintained thanks to the work of a dedicated man, J. Rayner Edmands, who in the early 1900’s did much work to make the path pleasant to hike, so there was much less “scrambling” up boulders and steep spots than on many longer trails.

We are thankful that the Lord allowed us this special time together to enjoy His beautiful creation!

For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.  Isaiah 55:12
