This was a very nice hike in Big Bend NP, the Window Trail. In the photo, you can see the Window, which is an opening in the rim around the Chisos Basin. After a hard rain, there would be waterfall flowing through the opening (pour-off). It was completely dry while we were there. Being November, it was also much cooler than the summer. We saw lots of signs about completing hikes by 10AM to avoid the worst heat.
I think most of us try to be aware of the dangers that surround us. Additionally, we all have a tendency to see only what we are looking for. The beginning of 2020 seems like a distant memory, when things were “normal” and “safe”. Though the world has not fundamentally changed, our experience and perspective has definitely changed over the past year. While current events can be disturbing, remember that God is the same yesterday, today and forever.
