June's Liturgical Hike - Reflections:

A hardy baker's dozen of us hiked the Chamisa Trail on Sunday, June 1st. It was a little warm but we had a great time anyway. There were a few cool mountain breezes and shade and beautiful butterflies and flowers. We ate our lunches and had Eucharist in the shade of a great pine tree in the meadow by Tesuque Creek.

The only real "problem" was that I inadvertently left my camera in the back of a pickup truck at the trail head and didn't realize it until it was much too late to go back for it. So no photos from this liturgical hiking adventure - I hope I never do that again! The beautiful blooming cactus above is in my "yard" and will have to suffice for this month.

We will meet again on Sunday July 6th so stay tuned for details. I'll post where we'll be hiking by June 22nd so you'll have plenty of time to check it out.We will probably leave a little earlier in the morning in order to beat the heat. We may also go up a bit in elevation for the same reason so be sure that you are up for that (no pun intended).

Please feel free to e-mail me about your favorite hikes if you wish and be sure to include links to any online information about your hike.



P.S. The camera was right where I left it. ☺

Worship in the Wilderness was the perfect way to begin the summer. I look forward to more of this creative liturgical way to be in community. Janie
