“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handiwork.”
Welcome to the Paths to Adventure and Praise blog.
One of my favorite pastimes is hiking in God’s beautiful creation. Whether it be in the mountains, by the seashore, in the desert, or any other place in nature, being outside draws me close to the Creator. I also enjoy travel in general, sometimes visiting unique towns and historical places.
Usually, while on an adventure, a psalm, proverb or song will come to mind, completing each quest.
Sometimes, I will post a description of the trail or place I have just explored and the praise that came to mind during the trek. Other times, I will simply post a picture of a place I have visited in the past that has touched my heart.
Life is full of adventurous paths; some you choose and some are chosen for you. These are the paths of my life.
One of my favorite paths. This picture was taken from Inspiration Point, overlooking Jenny Lake in Grand Teton National Park. The trail leads around Jenny Lake and goes past Hidden Falls before its steep ascent to this overlook. From this view, I have spent many hours sitting and reflecting upon all the beauty around me. A more adventurous hike can be experienced by following the path from here into Cascade Canyon to Lake Solitude.
