Take a Hike (Pt. 1)

June 28, 2008

(Maybe) you’ve noticed my recent absence.

My wife, Eileen, and I just returned from a week of camping in the Bent Creek area of Pisgah National Forest. It was great to get away and relax. We did some geocaching, waterfall looking, she did some painting and I did some reading. But, we did a LOT of hiking.

On Monday we did a couple of miles (and backtracked) along the Mountain to Sea Trail off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Then we watched a beautiful sunset on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Some may say, a preacher should never take a vacation! A heard of a deacon once who heard his pastor announce he was going to take a vacation. The deacon said, “The devil never takes a vacation!” The pastor replied, “You’re right, my friend, and I try not to live like the devil!” ‘Nuff said J

I’m going to share the trip with you over the next few days. Here are the pics from the trail and parkway sunset. Hope you enjoy!
