Back from Yosemite

Yosemite Summit 2010 is now history. I’m sitting in the airport waiting to come home. E-mail and work will still need to wait until Tuesday (sorry), my family is eager to spend some time with me.

It was, as always, an amazing week. I did both my hardest hike ever (Upper Yosemite Falls) and discovered the most amazing, most incredible, most mind-numbingly beautiful hike in Yosemite that we did when when weather caused us to cancel our original plan to head to Hech Hechy due to its higher elevation and possible road closures. I’ll perhaps write more about it later, but online it will only be referred to as “The Trail That Shall Not Be Named” since it is by far both the best trail in Yosemite and the least known. You’ll have to ask me personally for its name and location, and yes, I will tell you, I’m just not posting it online for random web surfers to read! I’d like to help keep the trail traffic low!

But aside from the amazing hikes and scenery, it was a fantastic week of rest and time with the Creator. We enjoyed good fellowship, encouraging conversations, prayer and enriching friendships that were born or deepened. I’m always a bit sad and down when Yosemite Summit is over because I don’t want it to end!

But, at the same time, I’m very eager to get home to my sweet wife and little boy. Soon!

    I am home and enjoying some rest from this past week. I want to thank Karl for his efforts in planning and facilitating the event. This is just what I needed. I had an opportunity to leave everything behind and just spend some time with God in His wonderful creation. I had time to pray, reflect, pray, meditate, pray, relax (from the stress of everyday life), and did I mention pray. While I was there I had time to reflect on things, talk with God about them and get some direction on where and what I should be doing. That being said it is now up to me to follow through with the insight I received. The men were awesome and it was great to spend some time with other godly men with no agenda except to hear from God and enjoy his creation. again Karl thanks for everything.
