Some of you know that John and Will went on a backpacking trip to the Sierra Nevadas a few weeks ago. It was, apparently, one of the hardest and most exhilarating experiences of their lives.
I can't provide much detail on exactly where any of this is and John and Will are both gone at the moment, but you can just admire the beautiful scenery.
The sun can be pretty intense, especially for a couple of pasty white boys.
God's amazing creation!
They came home with many stories, of both fun and pain. And at the very least, they could say they had done it, they had endured, and survived.
I, for one, am very thankful for the survival part! I tried not to, but couldn't help imagining all the things that could go wrong on a trip like this with precipitous heights and crumbling mountain faces. But the Lord kept them safe and brought them home!
As for whether or not they'll ever go again, Will says a definite, "No!" John knows that Micah will want to go in a year or two so he hasn't said absolutely not, but perhaps it's too soon to contemplate going again!
