It was an invitation to quite an "otherworldly" place.
Hiking up to a mesa the first day, we could see the red rock formations for miles.
As I sat there gazing out over the fantastic view I kept thinking, "I hope someday in heaven, the Lord will push "rewind" and show us how He created all of this!"
Our friends have amazing kids who hiked up here with no problem...well, except for a little help from mom and dad for the smallest one! :) What a special time of sharing in God's creation together with these dear ones.
All of us were riveted by the spectacular view, and you couldn't help but stare intently at it, trying to imagine how it came to look like this. The varied layers, the brilliant colors, the huge formations: it's an incredible feast for the eyes.
After three hikes in three days and precious time with these friends, I'm nourished in body and soul by this brilliant part of the world that God created.
And so thankful to get to do it with this wonderful man on Valentine's week-end!
