April Hike: Reflections

Springtime in the Rockies certainly can be "interesting".  The two days before and after April's liturgical hike were beautiful spring days.  The day of the hike, as you can see from the photo, was just plain winter.  In re-reading my pre-hike post I notice that I mentioned hoping to catch the last bit of winter along with the first signs of spring.  It was the coldest hike of the year!  Spring is definitely here, just not on Saturday morning on Big Tesuque Trail.

All that being said it was a beautiful day in its way.  We had an interesting and challenging hike and a quick Holy Communion at the intersection of Big Tesuque Trail and Windsor Trail where this photo was taken shortly before we headed back.  I don't believe that the Guinness Book of World Records records such things but we may have set the record for coldest temperature during a Eucharist, about 20°.

The good news is that from now on (at least until next winter) the weather will be warmer and hopefully more agreeable.  God is indeed gracious and good and we are thankful for God's blessings and protection and look forward to future worship in the cathedrals God has made for us.
