Bear Creek Mountain

On Saturday, August 22, Nate and I and Tobias went on the now-annual church hike. We walked through cool forests, sunny meadows, steep rocky hillsides, and stunted shrubs up to the peak. The 360 view, including Mt. Adams and Mt. Rainier, was almost too much to take in. When I think of God being omniscient, my limited mind thinks of a view like that, even though I know his eyes see big and small things, past, present, and future, as well as things not visible to the human eye. Tobias slept through all the great views, riding in his comfy carrier. Unfortunately, the day marked not only his first mountain peak, but his first sunburn. I felt badly about it, but it didn't seem to bother him. He was the youngest person on the hike (7 weeks old), and the oldest person was Tony B. at 84 years old. We took a picture of them together at the top!
