Silver lake is the home of the best resort I’ve ever visited. It is a very low traffic area with quaint little cabins and the best breakfast cafe in California! It’s about 8 miles from the pacific crest trail and 10 miles from the John Muir trail, so any thru hiker should take the short hike for a nice warm bed and a killer breakfast!
Though we still don’t have a van as of yet, it will not stop us from adventure. We built a folding plywood bed for the back of my little scion so that we could use it as a temporary camper. I look forward to all the great memories to be made in the future! Don’t be afraid to do something crazy, because when you come to the end of your life, you may come to find that you made very few good memories. #dosomethingadventurous
"When the rain set in we had nowhere left to go
So we just stayed in bed while the thunder rolled
There’s a comfort in the rain, one that only lovers know
So we lay hand in hand while the water rose”
-Peter Bradley Adams
This is a line from my favorite Peter Bradley Adams song. I couldn’t put it better any other way, that there is a comfort in the rain as we lay in the back of my beat up little car talking about days to come. Through it rained through the night, we made great memories.
Standing in front of the Tetons was a humbling experience like no other. Watching the sun set behind those majestic mountains was like watching God paint right in front of your eyes. There was a mixture of colors like I had never seen, and my camera just couldn’t capture it. This place is like medicine for me, and when my soul is distressed, watching God paint is the greatest remedy for my weary heart. It reminds me how small my problems actually are, and at the same time it reminds me of the greatness of God’s love for me. Even in my small, trivial problems, He cares enough to cradle me in the shelter of His nature and soothe my soul.
The Teton Range is quite possibly the most photogenic mountain range in the USA, and I certainly one of my favorite places to visit. The Snake River Overlook is a special place to me, and it is where great memories have been made! Here’s to the Grand Tetons!! 😄👏🎊🎉
