Repetition is Good

This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never all dried at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls. – John Muir What I learned, Day 10: FullSizeRender 140 We miss Lifepoint!  It was great to wake up this morning and stream in the service.  What a great message for my boys to hear! IMG_0412 My wife shouldn’t accidentally send me pictures if she doesn’t want them publicly disclosed.  That’s actually something she is learning.  I already knew that. IMG_0401 IMG_0403 IMG_0407 Some things bear repeating.  Boys wanted to fish again.  So far that is the thing they say is their favorite.  Still didn’t catch anything.  And untangled two gnarly knots. FullSizeRender 137 FullSizeRender 139 FullSizeRender 138 IMG_5247 There are colors that exist that are too intense to describe.  None of these pictures have filters.  The bottom pictures is the Grand Prismatic Spring.  What amazes me is this actually exists on planet earth.  What is even more amazing is that you see it at every turn. We took a short drive on a side road and saw several more springs and geysers.  All with the same blue hue.

Another thing I learned, or maybe it is something everyone else will learn when they read this, is that I can alter the schedule and go off the spreadsheet.  We are pulling out a day early tomorrow to hit one day in the Tetons.  We were looking at our route to Yosemite and it added too much time to the driving.  Instead we’ll just make a day of it!
