Somewhere above the timberline...that’s where the world is the most at peace for me. Where expectations I place on myself tend to calm and I feel a little closer to what I suppose God thinks of me.
I understand why we’re not made for mountaintops, there would little point to this life if we lived only on high hopes and the passing of the sun from one peak to another.
I think we forget that we’re allowed to take the mountain down with us to the lowlands, using the persistence it took to arrive, and the glory lived there. I think even more we are allowed to completely forget the mountaintop until we see it again. Maybe that is what keeps us human, drives our empathy, and reminds us of how we belong.
This was my first time to Capitol Reef National Park. I recommend strolling through the orchards of Fruita. After getting your fill of fresh fruit take a stroll through beautiful canyons. Capitol Gorge Road leads to petroglyphs and the Pioneer Register. Early pioneers stopped and carved their names here. Trying to outdo each other some tried to sign their name by shooting. Here you can find the signature of Quantrill’s Civil War Raiders’ Cass Hite. You may recognize his name if you’ve been to Lake Powel...Hite Crossing #capitolreefnationalpark#utah#travelutah#utahsbig5#nationalparks#nps#getoutdoors
This was a wonderful day! In life some people believe you only get two chances but people who believe in Jesus know that every day is a new start to a new chance and beginning. I am blessed to say the least. And I love my family. 💙👪✝️
