After a buffet breakfast at The Old Faithful Inn, we headed South from Yellowstone to Grand Teton National Park. As you can see on the map, it was a quick trip since the two parks are basically connected. I’ve not mentioned this before, but I LOVE mountains. Not only are they beautiful, but they are awe-inspiring to me. They seem so powerful. In fact, mountains are the landscape where I feel the closest to God and his awesomeness. Recently in church they read a verse from Psalms that made me think of how amazing nature is. It led me to this verse…Psalm 65:6 “Which by his strength sets fast the mountains; being surrounded with power.” So I’m not the only one that feels that way about mountains. 🙂
Along the way we passed the Continental Divide and a beautiful waterfall. Of course we had to stop at the waterfall (another of my loves). The kids enjoyed getting close to this one.
And finally…the Grand Tetons!
This is one of those things where pictures just aren’t the same. I feel the same way about trying to describe it…it’s indescribable. Which leads me back to the church service where I heard Psalm 19. It was the inspiration for the song “Indescribable” which we sang in church that day. It sums up how I feel about mountains and all of God’s amazing creations. Do you have a song that does the same for you?
