Meandering along the Cold Springs Nature Trail, Picture #3

It’s always fun meeting new people on the trail. These two ladies were the only other ones we saw the morning my husband and I hiked the Cold Springs Nature Trail. We took turns passing each other while pausing every so often to gaze upon the beauty of nature.DSC_0048

My favorite picture of the week is from “Lee’s Birdwatching Adventures Plus” blog. What an AWESOME shot!

*** HASTILY CATCH IT *** “Now the men did diligently observe whether any thing would come from him, and did hastily catch it: and they said, Thy brother Benhadad. Then he said, Go ye, bring him. Then Benhadad came forth to him; and he caused him to come up into the chariot. (1 Kings 20:33 […]

Cold Springs Nature Trail, Picture #1

Yes! My husband and I were able to enjoy a stroll along the Cold Springs Nature Trail this week. This trail is located in the remote Mineral King Region of Sequoia National Park, part of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range in Central California.

It did not disappoint! This two-mile path rambled along through fields of wildflowers and hugged the East Fort of the Kaweah River, where several small, rushing waterfalls helped to make our day special.

During the rest of this month, I will feature a different picture of this magnificent nature trail and pair it with a praise to the Creator who makes all nature beautiful! Enjoy!

Best Easy Day Hikes Sequoia & Kings Canyon

513KlkL0g6L._SX298_BO1,204,203,200_This little book has been the guide to my best adventures in Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks.

Each summer, for the past nine years, I’ve slowly, one by one, hiked one or more of the magnificent trails found in the pages of this book.

Now, I have six left.

If it all works out, next week another one will be explored: The Cold Springs Nature Trail. This trail is located in a part of Sequoia National Park that I have yet to visit. Needless-to-say, I’m very excited about this upcoming adventure.

I hope to post a description of the hike along with pictures next week.
