Estes Park, Colorado
I'm going to one of my earthly homes this summer. Estes Park, Colorado. My Mom found a house for the 10 of us to rent this summer for a few days. I spent my High School years in Estes Park.
Since its located in Northern Colorado and my parents have settled in Central Colorado I don't make it back to my home turf very often.
What a joy to be with there with my Mom, Dad, Brother and all the additions that God has brought to our little family.
This place means a great deal to me. Growing up in the mountains was a unique privilege that I don't take lightly. The people who live there are outdoor adventurers, risk takers and admires of God's handiwork. Those people and their passions made a very big impression on me.
Most importantly God made a bigger impression. How can you not be wowed by Him when your seven mile commute into school everyday brings you to vistas that never cease to inspire? Majesty, beauty, strength, wildness, dependence, the brilliance of snow covered trees...
In August I will go and remember with family and old friends, and be grateful to rediscover it with the next generation of our family. A blessing indeed!
What get away are you most excited about this summer?
