This photo was taken during the Maah Daah Hey Trail run in July. It was hot – very hot. As you can see, there were a few trees but almost none provide shade for the trail. This lake was just over 8 miles into the run. Combine this with the fact that the first aid station was not until after mile 10 and you can understand why I was longing for cool water.
As the deer longs for streams of water, so my soul longs for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, the living God. Psalms 42:2-3
