USA Adventure Day 8

day 8Day 8 everyone awoke in much better spirits (especially me).  And after a quiet morning of reflection and reorganizing my goals and priorities, I was ready and I believe we were all ready to make the most of each challenge and opportunity.

Our little motel was located on a hot springs so we all took a dip in the morning before breakfast.  Then we took a little walk through the motel’s backyard.
DSCF8744 (640x480) We packed up and headed to Death Valley.  It is amazing to think that a people group learned to survive and thrive in this area.DSCF8750 (640x480) DSCF8756 (640x163) DSCF8770 (480x640)Not only have people learned to survive in this environment but God has made a way for many animals to adapt to this harsh land.  The most interesting we learned about is a little snail that lives in the waters around the desert.  We did not see any but it was amazing to think that God has made a way for such a delicate creature as a snail to survive here.

Tomorrow is a big day as we visit the Hoover Dam and head into the Grand Canyon.  DSCF8793 (480x640)As I say good night, I count my blessing because they are so many.  The six above are so precious to me.  And I am also so blessed and thankful for Tobin, his vision and leadership for our family and willingness to take a risk and go where God is leading.  I am so blessed to be going down the road of life’s adventure with the 7 people I love the most.
