Back from God's Country

My wife, kids, and I are back from our week-long vacation, and oh what a wonderful trip! We spent 7 glorious days in a cabin that sits a 30 second walk from a small alpine lake south of Lake Tahoe. In deference to the propietors of the lake, will not divulge the lake's name. They enjoy their customers, but they don't want too many customers. The lake is surrounded on three sides by massive granite peaks and ridges. This is one of the peaks, and who should be looking up at it, but my son. He quickly got cabin fever, so I accompanied him on many a trek through the woods in an effort to burn off his endless supply of energy.

I so enjoy the woods, and I hope to instill that love of the outdoors in both of my children. This yearly pilgrimage will certainly help. I think it was the philosopher Rousseau who said that being separated from nature turns man into a savage. In order to civilize our children, my wife and plan on getting them into the "savage" woods every chance we can get.

Please enjoy the other pictures that follow. I am tired of trying to figure out how to put multiple photos in one post without it looking like crap, so I finally decided to make each photo its own post. Think of this as a very extended edition of God's Country!

Good Day to You, Sir
