No TV. No radio. There was no outside world contact (except for a few email checks on the IPhone) just us, the redwoods and family camp. Last week we spent Fourth of July week in the Santa Cruz Mountains at Mount Hermon. We look forward to setting time aside every year to disconnect and refocus on what’s important, our family and God. I have been summering at Mount Hermon since I was 9 and it’s a wonderful feeling to bring our little ones to share the same experiences I did as a child. Just imagine little cabins scattered among a large grove of Sequoia Redwoods and you have, beautiful Mount Hermon.
On the fourth I decided to see how far I could stretch my camera in extreme low light situations. Keep in mind that the only available light in these next two sets were an orange street lamp 100 feet away, camera right.

On one of our evenings, Kurt and I trail hiked through a portion of the redwood grove.
So peaceful… I love sitting under these beautiful giants.
ME, in all my roughin’ it glory!
