MOST RECENT

Flying in from America to find that both my checked in bags have been lost by the airlines. So left with carry on item only. It included my clothes, gifts for family and friends and a lot of cool gadgets for our church. All ingredients to make me upset and mad but still I kept my cool knowing all things work together for good with those who love God. The bags are still not found, but I have the Joy of the Lord that I won’t loose. #SONRISE #GiveThanksinEVERYTHING

Fifth year anniversary trip with @hellomae brought us back to Tahoe, our wedding location. Melody wanted to circumnavigate the lake, which was deemed as the 165 mile club, but our plans changed after we were unable to muster up anymore energy on our 87 mile trek from the Nevada California state line to Tahoe City. It was tough to stop, since Melody is one of the most resilient people I know. Once she has made up her mind, there's not much that can stop her.

The good news is that, continuing with tradition, we stayed at an alpine lake with a mountainous view every night. We headed from Kingsbury South trailhead at the start of our Tahoe Rim Trail bid to Star Lake as our easy 9 mile first day. Then headed 17 miles to Round Lake.

Our plans were changed after being notified our third lake wasn't available for camping, so we were assisted on a water taxi to split up our 19 mile third day to Lake of the Woods in Desolation Wilderness, a location I'm dying to go back to. Next stop, a short 11 mile hike to Fontanillis Lake, but after our hardest climb up Dick's Pass. And lastly, the swan song at our last stop with a wonderful smoke free view of Tahoe.

A Day Without Scooter.

Looking back at my day walking around Venice, after Santa Monica announced they wouldn't be supporting Bird or Lime causing the companies to withdraw their support in the city. These scooters were an interesting concept, but it seemed to be more of a nuisance to many, especially after seeing them around Tahoe this past trip.

The sky caught on fire, despite all the smoke from the wildfires engulfing the area, one night during my anniversary trip with @hellomae. I was hoping to see more of this, with thunderstorms and clouds usually forming in the afternoons in the Sierras, but the unexpected dry climate, and smoke really dampened the opportunities.

Wildfires in California this year were an added challenge to our Tahoe Rim Trail backpacking trip. The smoke-filled air made it more difficult to breathe. It became a norm to not be able to see very far.

On day 4, we arrived at Lake of The Woods after an 18+ mile day of backpacking. Taking a dip in the cool lake water was a huge relief. That evening, the combination of clouds and smoke made the sunset extra orange.

When the sun was beginning to set, the 12 disciples came to Jesus and said,”Send the people away so that they can go to the village and farms around here and find food and lodging, because this is lonely place.” But Jesus said to them,”You yourselves give them something to eat.” They answered,”All we have are five loaves and two fishes. Do you want us to go and buy food for this whole crowd?” (There were about 5,000 men there.) Jesus said to His disciples,”Make the people sit down in groups of about 50 each.” After the disciples had done so, Jesus took the 5 loaves and 2 fishes, looked up to heaven, thanked God from them, broke them, and gave them to the disciples to distribute to the people.-Luke 9:12-16 (📖:The Wisdom of Jesus; Publications International, Ltd.) #jesusisthebreadoflife🍞#jesusblessesus#thebreadoflife🍞🍞#givethankstogod❤️#jesusfeedsthe5000 #givethanksandpraise#givethankseveryday#givethanksalways🙏#givethanksineverything#thankfuleveryday🙏🏼❤️#thankyoulordgod🙏🙏🙏
