For the Beauty of the Earth . . .

Posted: September 8, 2011 by Michele in family

Our holidays this year ended up tacked on to the EMI Staff Conference.  We chose to drive down to Colorado – lots of hours in the car, but wow – what gorgeous country!  Between the drive there and back, we managed to travel through four States and visit five national parks (4 in the US and 1 in Canada)

Yellowstone National Park:

The Grand Tetons:

Rocky Mountain National Park:

Glacier National Park (the US one):

and finally, Waterton National Park (back in Canada!):

What can I say?  “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” (Psalm 19:1)

Another neat element of our holidays was a chance to visit one of the EMI volunteers who had been on the trip that Kevin led to Kenya last year.  His family graciously hosted us at their beautiful home in Jackson Hole, and then we spent the day together hiking in the Tetons.  What a wonderful break after several days of driving!

So, while we didn’t make it to the Okanagan this summer (sorry, Mom & Dad!), we did enjoy a fabulous road trip, lots of geocaching, some new friends, lots of family time, and plenty of breathtaking scenery.  Now to scrapbook all those pictures . . . 😉
