Trail of the Cedars ~ Glacier Park

Hi Hi Hi!  I'm back from "the Lake" and it was simply glorious! I'm so grateful to be back home, but it was a special time of relaxation, laughter, good food and wonderful scenery! I can't wait to show you some spectacular moments I captured with my camera... unfortunately I ended up having no ability to load up some posts I had made, due to bad internet service... so here's one I truly hope you will ENJOY!

When we were visiting Glacier Park several weeks ago, Brian and I went on a little 'nature trail' ~ a small hike of about three-quarters of a mile long, next to Avalanche creek, which flows into McDonald creek. There is a lovely campsite there, right off the main road, as you head up to the "Going To The Sun" Highway, which leads to Logan Pass, the highest point (roadwise) in Glacier Park.
We read the signs, took our time, and of course, I snapped a few pics ...
Loved this tree root... the patterns and tangles.

old stumps... mossy places.  It really was peaceful.
Bright green fronds with the contrast of the black seeds they will soon spread.
The sign below: "Strength in bark and branch witnesses to centuries.  Giant, steadfast, cedars."
Lots of sketchbook ideas...
"... something for everyone..."
floating leaves ...
rays of sun highlighting our path...
I was caught by surprise at these unexpected colors on this leaf... have no clue what it may be, perhaps a mold of some kind?

Thrive.
  Yes!  
When sin is blocked out through the Living Water, 
we ... Thrive.  Amen.
