Good things rarely come easy! It was a short, but steep hike up the Duchess Mine trail, but the effort was well worth it. We had a fantastic bible study, some spontaneous worship, inspiring prayer, great fellowship, and some hot chocolate, while watching the sunset from one of the best places in the area to watch a sunset. Hope you’ll join us next time.
On Saturday, 11-10-2018, we did our second Wilderness Bible Study to Relief Reservoir. First, we met for some doughnuts and a quick reading prepared by Charlie. Then, as we carpooled up the hill to Relief Reservoir, we had the opportunity to view the start location of the Donnell fire and drive through some of the devastated areas. It was a great way to put life into perspective as we prepared for our hike.
Once at the trail head, we embarked on our hike. It was 7.5 miles, round trip, with about 1000 feet of elevation gain. Once we finally got to the lake, we ate lunch and read 2 Peter for about an hour. Then we rolled our way back down the hill.
It was a great day of praise, fellowship and study. And, once again, God provided us with some perfect hiking weather for November!
Our first Wilderness Bible Study was held on October 13th, 2018. It was a great loop hike from Gianelli trail head off of Crabtree Rd. We did some off trail hiking up some sloping granite in the Bell creek drainage, until we met up with the Gianelli trail at Powell Lake. There, we studied from the book of Luke and ate lunch.
After our bible study, we hiked out past Burst Rock. The weather was perfect, and the views from there were spectacular. It was a great day of fellowship, study, praising the lord, and adventure. We hope you can make the next one. (Egyptian Cats, Bears, Mountain Lions, Aliens, and JESUS! You’ll have to ask someone who was there what that means.)
