Sand Dune City

Jockey’s Ridge State Park, Kitty Hawk, NC, March 2010 Imagine endless sand dunes towering 80 feet high. Picture windswept sand that you must trudge through and worry about getting buried in.

A ferry ride across Jenny Lake

The ferry ride was early morning and very cold. The ferry ride was brief, but scenic. The water was still and serene. It was an overcast morning so the clouds hovering made the landscape mysterious.

God’s Green Earth

The Shoreline of Jenny Lake: Grand Teton

My favorite part of Grand Teton National Park was walking along the footpath that bordered Jenny Lake. It was lush, green and very narrow. Walking single-file was imperative. The stillness of the silent water provided a perfect compliment to the rising height and jagged edges of the Grand Teton range. How I wished I had time to circle the entire lake from the visitor center and back. I just praise God for the privilege of seeing, smelling, hearing and touching the sights, sounds and grandeur of Grand Teton National Park.
