j u s t • w o r d s —

how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
was blind, but now I see. 

Let love & 
never leave you;
bind them
around your neck,
write them
on the tablet
of your heart.
Proverbs 3:3 

(WOW. Think about that.)


You may not see it today or tomorrow, 
but you will look back in a few years and be
absolutely perplexed and awed by how every little
thing added up and brought you somewhere 
wonderful - or where you always wanted to be. 
You will be grateful that things didn't work out 
the way you once wanted them to.

I admire people 
who choose 
to shine
even after
all the storms
they've been through. 
To pray is to let go & let God take over. 
Rest in Jesus, 
trust in His unfailing love.


Beartooth Mountains: Skiing in May

This is me! Standing at the top - about to drop in. 
This is steeper then it looks! Here's a pic of my skiing buddy Jonathan -
making summer turns down the Gardner Headwall, Beartooth Mountains, Wymont.

Gardner Lake still frozen down below……  
Starting point elevation: 10,852' & finishing el. roughly 9,985' — After skiing down, we had to hike back up other side, gaining about a thousand feet. It was 37 degrees & it rained / sleeted on us while we were hiking back up. The hike out isn't too bad - only takes about 15 − 20 minutes. It's very steep though. 

There was much less snow this year. A lot more rock was exposed. The Beartooth Basin was unfortunately unable to open, due to lack of snow. But I still had a blast skiing the Gardner Headwall! If your interested in summer backcountry skiing — Here's a blogpost (with more & better pictures!!) from 2014 with my summer skiing adventures.
