Louisa and Paul – Slough Creek Trail

I started my blog with an image and soundtrack from Slough Creek.  It was a great hike for many reasons … spring flowers were popping, the light was really nice with clouds floating in and out, a sprinkle of spring rain a couple of times, a lovely pond and a meadow at our turnaround point, …. I could go on.

The sites and photographic opportunities made each day’s hike a real treat, as well as the new friendships we developed.  But another very special aspect of the trails was the serenity.  The air was clean, there was no noise polution, and quietly observing God’s handiwork helped me meditate on the things that are truly inspiring and important in life.  It made the difficult climbs and challenges of the 7,000 ft. elevation well worth the effort and energy.

This image of Louisa and Paul, a lovely Vermont couple who adores the outdoors and hiking, reminded me that my close relationships are a hugely important part of my life.  It’s so easy to take our closest family and friends for granted because they are always there for us, day-in and day-out.

Listen in (click the Audio under the image and adjust your sound if necessary) to hear a little bit of nature and the serenity of a walk along Slough Creek Trail while viewing the image of Louisa and Paul.  Their casual stride and conversation sounds so peaceful and inviting, doesn’t it?  Use this as your spark to reflect for a moment, then hug or share a special “Thank You” with an important person in your life!  Louisa and Paul – Thanks for coming to the workshop and for letting us become friends with you.
