Zack and Andy start back at the college on Monday, so I arranged for one more field trip before they can’t go anymore… We had a few friends tag along, too! Makes the day even more fun!
First we stopped at the 7 Wonders Creation Museum to learn about how the eruption of Mt St Helens help to support the fact that the earth did not need millions of years to develop. If you ever get the chance to go, do it!
Then we headed up the mountain to have lunch at Coldwater Lake and then hike the Boundary Trail out to Devil’s Elbow. About halfway up the mountain we could see smoke coming in from over the hills. It gave everything an eerie hue and somewhat hampered our view of the mountain.
But it was still gorgeous and just one more proof of God’s powerful and creative nature!
