Saturday, our final day in Colorado, we went for one more hike. We began with a slower pace for the little girls. Abigail and Bethany were so cute and did really well. Eventually, though, Nathan’s family turned around, and John stayed with them a bit to carry Christina a little longer, while the rest of us continued. John caught up to us before we reached the ridge.
Since it was clouding over, most didn’t go on to the top peak, but stayed on the ridge. We took pictures, ate lunch, and enjoyed the rest. Then, we headed back down. Although we heard thunder, some of which sounded pretty close, we didn’t get wet.
We drove safely home Sunday. The trip was an incredible blessing as we enjoyed each other, God’s creation, and quiet days. Now, we’re back to catching up and preparing for our next trip.
“Seek the Lord and his strength,
seek his face continually.”
