“The Creator of the Ends of the Earth”

We took a quiet day after our 14er, and then we went back to hiking on Friday and Saturday. I can’t quite describe the beauty and peacefulness of God’s creation as we hike. The stunningly rugged mountains, bubbling crystal-clear streams, pretty wildflowers, stately aspen trees–all are reminders of their awesome Creator. It is a joy to soak in God’s majesty!

Joyfully His,

“Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that
the everlasting God, the LORD,
the Creator of the
ends of the earth,
fainteth not, neither is weary?
there is no searching of his understanding.”


Jesse has become very proficient at being able to point out mountains.
What a view!

“He giveth power to the faint; and to
them that have no might he increaseth strength.”

If you look very closely, you’ll see the five youngest walking along the path. They sometimes take longer at a viewpoint and catch up to those of us who need a bit more time to make it to the next destination.
This was such a lovely place to eat our lunch, perched on the edge of a mountain top. This is where my Gorillapod and timer come in handy. 😉

“Even the youths shall faint and be
and the young men shall utterly fall:”






Jesse enjoys his waterproof boots.


We discovered an area that had incredible echos!


“But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
Isaiah 40:28-31

    God’s creation is so very beautiful. He is even more beautiful!

  4. Hellooooo, Maxwells, from Switzerland. Saw parts of the Matterhorn today but never all of it at once due to clouds. Zermatt is a beautiful village and carless. We are having a wonderful trip but will be ready to get home Sunday.
