A Crisp Fall Day

>> Wednesday, October 20, 2010

On Saturday, we decided to take a drive and see if we could find some good spots to take some fall pictures.  Our original plan was to drive a little south to a town called Cripple Creek.  But somewhere along the way, My Marine changed his mind.  Which wasn't a bad thing.  We ended up driving along this little dirt road in this little valley.  There we discovered a running creek and some beautiful scenery.

We'd stop along the way and take some pictures.  The girls' favorite spot was at the little pull-off where we could walk right up to the stream.  They had a ball throwing rocks into the stream and Nani and I would take leaves and put them in the water and watch the currant take them away.

My Marine kept apologizing to me saying that this wasn't the route we were supposed to take.  But I told him that this was just as good.  We never would have found this route if we hadn't taken the alternate route.  The end result was the same -- we got some great pictures!

Kind of good reminder, though, about my walk with God.  I may want to take one route, but God will gently nudge me towards another - knowing that the scenery along the way is just as beautiful and the end result will always bring me to Him.

Here's some pictures from our day on Saturday!

Sweet pictures! :) Some of the best trips I've ever been on are the ones without a planned route anyway. We should all do this more often!
