Hume Lake, a godly experience

The only word powerful enough to describe Hume Lake is “godly.” I can see now why they host Christian camps there. The water was clear, air crisp, and sun perfectly warm.

Finished up my bible reading today with Proverbs. Perfect place to read.

 

The original plan was to leave early, hike Sunset Loop Trail in Redwood Canyon and then swing up to Hume Lake after the 7 mile trail. Well, of course I slept in (woops!) Instead I just went straight to Hume Lake and spent the afternoon.

I read for hours in Sandy Cove. Good thing I brought three books and a magazine.  I could have read for hours more.

Just beautiful

While the entire scene was wonderful, next time someone remind me that sun rays are stronger at an elevation of 5,200 feet! I am red and CRISPY. Well worth it.

Before leaving I stopped by the gift shop at the Christian camp to browse and pick up some post cards. I paid with credit so the young girl behind the counter asked for an ID. When I pulled it out she gasped, “Woah, Iowa!” Yep…that’s me. She asked what brought me out here. I told her about my internship in Fresno. The girl wrinkled her nose and said, “Ohhh, Fres-Pit. I’m sorry.” Too bad I kind of like Fresno!  Although, driving back from the Sequoias i noticed it smelled a little worse than I remembered.

Stopped on the way for my first plum at this fruit stand.

And before I go, I’ll leave you with this message.  I couldn’t help but smile as I passed this little place. “Got time? Make some.” I love that. We could all use that message sometimes.

Only the world rewards you for being busy. But that’s not who matters. #MakeTime

Until next time, cheers from California!
