Here are pictures from our youth group's 2018 hiking trip to the Upper Buffalo River area in Arkansas. We spent Friday night near the trailhead. On Saturday we hiked a steep descent of 3 miles to the river and had half the day to play in the sunshine and water. Sunday, the day of "rest," we had a grueling hike out -- climbing 2,000 feet of elevation in about 4 miles, most of that coming in the last two miles.
The kids had better attitudes than any trip Lee Ann or I had ever guided (helped maybe by the fact that it was a short trip!). Regardless, your kids did a magnificent job! We enjoyed the beauty of our Lord in his orginal temple, the created world.
