Our children had not seen (or remembered seeing) this great wonder so we included it at the end of our recent eastern trip. Maybe it was the new camera--which serves as new "eyes" through which to see all kinds of things--but I really enjoyed our visit to Niagara Falls!
This somewhat serendipitous image (I wish I could take artistic credit for capturing the boat just as it passed through the poetic "end of the rainbow") shows both the natural beauty and an enduring staple of the falls experience, the Maid of the Mist boat rides.

Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set. (Prov. 22:28).
I can tell you we were very glad to see these blue paint marks along the trail in the Green Mountains around Stowe, VT. There are many good parallels to draw when one is hiking. It seems like just when we thought we might have left the trail we'd begin to look for the markers and sometimes it took a little while to find them, especially if we hadn't been paying attention. Other times, just when we needed them most, there they were, in plain sight. What a blessing that someone went on before us and marked the way. Who is following you and me and what kind of trail markers are we leaving?

First installment of the vacation pix! This typical New England church sits prominently in the center of beautiful Stowe, VT where we spent several days last week. We used it several times during our hikes in the nearby mountains to identify the location of the little village...some good food for thought there.
