All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.
2 Tim. 3:16 – 17
The picture is of a stunted alpine tree in my and Dad’s camp site on our Goat Rocks Wilderness adventure. You can see our tent in the background. The tiny trees charmed us both. There’s something oddly surreal about walking through a forest no taller than your shoulder. Seeing that, and finding some ash left on my backpack from the trip, does make me feel… well, somewhat nostalgic, somewhat homesick. I almost wish I could just get a job maybe as a ranger, backpacking and checking trail conditions and such. It’s hard to compare that experience to our heavy-studying, indoor-work-intensive lifestyle that immediately resumed when we got back to Worcester.
