September's Liturgical Hike

Hi All,

Once again, by popular demand, we will be hiking the Norski Trail on Sunday the 7th. This is the trail we hiked in July and was, as I promised, a very enjoyable and easy hike. You can find my posts regarding that first Norski hike with additional information in the link to "older posts" just to the right below this post.

September 7th may be too early for fall colors but I'm sure we will see changes from two months ago as this lovely area gets ready for the new season.

As before we will meet in the St. Bede's parking lot at 8:30am and leave there at 8:45am.

This is a shorter hike and we will most likely be finished before noon.

Blessings and I look forward to seeing you on the 7th,

Jon+

P.S. Be sure to bring water and a snack (or lunch) and be prepared for whatever the weather may have in store for us. I'll be there rain or shine (or whatever else).

August's Liturgical Hike: Reflections

On Sunday August 3rd a hardy group of 15 hiked the Aspen Vista trail. The weather was perfect, the views were spectacular and the Christian fellowship was divine.

I think all would agree that the part of Aspen Vista we hiked was not too difficult and could be rated "moderately easy". We hiked about 2 miles up stopping along the way for a reading at one place, a rest break at another, and then had Eucharist. Afterwards, many decided to hike a bit further while others simply returned.

I think it is safe to say that Aspen Vista will become a recurring favorite. I expect that we will return to Aspen Vista in October (the 5th) when hopefully the Aspen's will be ablaze with color.

Our September hike will be Sunday the 7th, which is not Labor Day weekend. So look for my post with details about that hike soon and plan to be with us.

Blessings,

Jon+
