Desolation Wilderness - Lake Tahoe, CA - In Panorama

Updated: Oct 20, 2018

I have wanted to do a solo backpacking trip for a long time. Something about being alone in the rugged wilderness has captured my imagination for a while, but I just never made it happen. There were a number of obstacles. For one, it's kinda scary to go into the woods alone, particularly when you have never done it before. But also, it's just hard to get away. Anyway, I finally made it happen and my amazing wife Laura took care of our amazing kids by herself so I could go. As you will see, my trip was absolutely breathtaking. I found myself many times saying out loud to myself, "This ...is ...absolutely ...crazy. This is ... crazy. ...God, this is crazy." I am so thankful for the beauty I got to see. I hope you enjoy these.

Sue, thanks so much for your comment! I didn't realize that you had moved to Washington State. I'm so glad that you are finding God in the lonely wilderness. Those rugged, wild, lonely places sometimes mirror what is in our own hearts and we can find ourselves there--and find God of course too--waiting for us. May you keep seeing his beauty there! PS. When I was on my hike I ran into a number of hikers who were doing the PCT. The trails I was on were part of that route. :)

So, after Dave died, all I wanted to do was to find God in all of it. I moved to Washington state and learned of the PCT and the JMT. I am obsessed with getting out on these trails and finding God in a way I’ve never done before. I am convinced He will be there for me. Seeing this post randomly was unreal to me. I recognized these pictures immediately even though I’ve never been there.

Anyhow, I have always looked to people for love...my whole life and well, God has been very adamant that His love is all I need. Therefore, I am choosing to eventually leave life behind as I always knew it and explore the beauty…
