We broke our trip up to the cabin in two days (Friday and Saturday), which made it more relaxing and also gave us time to shop. Since we’re in a new area this year, and it’s very remote, the tiny groceries stores are very expensive. Mom is our master list extraordinaire, and she planned out what we could get at home and then what we needed closer in.
Our drive up Saturday involved a lot of traffic a lot of beautiful views. We stopped for coffee at a favorite place and then continued on.
When we reached Monarch Pass, we went on a little hike. At the top, the wind was so crazy strong, it was hard to even stand upright. Dad thought it was about 50 mph! Needless to say, we didn’t stay too long on the top but headed back down.
We reached our cabin by early evening, and it’s so delightful. The views of mountains out the windows are stunning, the sound of a nearby river flowing, the wind through the pine trees, and amazing family times. We celebrated Mom’s birthday too.
Sunday, we walked to a little church and enjoyed worship there. We’re so grateful for this opportunity to be away.
“Thy righteousness is like the great mountains;
thy judgments are a great deep: O Lord, thou
preservest man and beast. How excellent is thy
lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children
of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.”
