Hike: Cherokee Ridge Alpine Trail (all trails), Sat. 2/5/2011, 08:47-13:00
Distance: 7.2 miles Rating: 5/5
Conditions: Mostly cloudy. A few patches of blue from time to time. Breezy. Upper 30's to low 40's. Cold on the windward side of ridges. Trails wet from rain. Water still running off to lake in drainage areas.
Observed several cardinals, tufted titmouse, and crows. Choppy on the main lake but calmer in sloughs. Good time to pray, meditate, and worship. Thank YOU, LORD GOD, for what YOU have done and for what YOU are going to do.
Thought a lot about friends at Crestview.
Considered some projects I can be doing at home to simplify our lives. Simplicity and sincerety on my mind quite a bit lately. Also considering ways to better prepare my family for emergencies or difficult times
