For this post: back to salvation Mountain, Niland, CA. We did not have this destination on our itinerary during our recent trip out west, but, we were glad that we made the journey there. And, it is quite a journey! You need to pass the Salton Sea (image coming soon) and be okay with feeling like you are driving…well…. to nowhere-land! The artist, Leonard Knight, created a totally unique work expressing his faith in God.
Snow Canyon State Park, in Ivins, Utah, was our favorite stop during our recent road trip out west. A bicycle/walking/hiking friendly park with lots of trails and amazing scenery, this park is a must see if you are ever in Utah.
May you and yours know life and hope…
“Seventy-six trombones led the big parade.”
Well, not quite 76, but I am sure that old Harold Hill would have been really pleased to see the seven trombone players pictured here marching in our county’s annual Corn Festival Parade.
This is the final post from the opening night of our local high school’s marching band/football season.
The biggest take away from my trip to Haiti was the reality that light shines amidst the darkness. We met missionaries, pastors, entrepreneurs and nuns that are bringing hope, practical help and light to Haiti.
The Apparent Project is a bright light in Haiti. Please take a moment to acquaint yourself with this life giving and life changing work: http://apparentproject.org/
On the homepage of The Apparent Project you will read: “Arts advocating for the poor.” This is a remarkable work that is providing skills, employment and, literally, life, to families.

The second image from my meanderings along the banks of the Illinois River. This is a favorite spot…if you have been hanging around my blog for a while you will probably recognize it. Have a great week!
