and we hiked

yesterday we hiked
with our oldest daughter
and her son ( our two year old grandson)

we hiked table mountain
which is a flat topped rock like mountain
up by mt. baker;

it was a twisting and turning kind 
of drive to get up there from our farm...
it took us about an hour or so to get there.

when we left home it was
overcast and almost a bit rainy
and when we broke through and 
got up high enough,
the sun was out and it was
just amazing!

i kept thinking of the chris tomlin song

                                From the highest of heights to the depths of the sea

Creation's revealing Your majesty
From the colors of fall to the fragrance of spring
Every creature unique in the song that it sings
All exclaiming

Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are amazing God
All powerful, untameable,
Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God

sharing a lot of the 
amazing photos
i took yesterday-
this is table mountain

This post lifts my spirit and I'm blessed to read your words. Sometimes when it's hard to find your own joy hearing of someone elses joy can light the way. . .BTW, my son and DIL moved to Ellensburg, WA a few weeks ago. Are you anywhere near Ellensburg?
