Journey

“Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s about unbecoming everything that isn’t really you, so that you can  be who you were meant to be in the first place.”

And most definitely, it is realizing and living the transformed life that God gives us through Jesus, in whom “we are a new creation.”
Isaiah 26, Wallowa Lake

Backpacking Eagle Creek in the Eagle Cap Wilderness

Bob Carter and I enjoyed a three day backpack trip up the Eagle Creek drainage on the south side of the Eagle Cap Wilderness. Bob and I have been hiking together since 2003, and we are grateful our legs still let us enjoy these trips.

We left  Monday afternoon and found very few others on the trail.  The flowers were at their peak, blooming in green expansive meadows beneath formidable peaks and cliffs.
