While visiting my dad in Jackson earlier this summer, Sarah and I took a bike ride near the house.  It was a beautiful day.

274

There were beautiful clouds in the sky.

273

We rode along the Snake River.

272

This section of the Snake River is beautifully braided.

271

We tried to get a self portrait with the mountains, and giggled over many missed shots until we finally got this one.

270

It’s fun riding bikes with my daughter.

269

I love the part where the trail goes back into the forest.

268

There are irrigation ditches and ponds in the forest.

267

It was a beautiful day in the woods.

I love special days with my daughter!

We had a picnic near this spot

248

We rode our bikes alongside this amazing mountain range

247

Unknown to me, Sarah was making goofy faces when

I was taking pictures over my shoulder!

246

I’m thankful I didn’t fall while I was taking these pics, although I swerved a few times

245

Sarah was finally caught in the act and we had a good laugh

Beauty All Around

Creation is such an interesting variety of beauty, glory and power!  How do flowers open?  What keeps a volcano from erupting for hundreds of years?  Why do some leaves come in green and others red?  God is amazing!
