The Trail Less Traveled

IMG_2396.JPGVacationing in the Smoky Mountains and visiting the Rockefeller Memorial at Newfound Gap, my oldest son said, “Look, is that a trail?”  And behind the stone monument there was a unmarked trail tracking up the ridge.  So the four of us went traipsing up this trail for a few minutes.  And what was fun was thinking, “Has anyone been up here in a week? a month?”  And knowing we were less than a hundred feet from the Appalachian Trail with its hundreds of hikers, and this was actually a more interesting hike than the Newfound Gap section of the AT.  Pretty cool.  That’s one thing I want to teach my kids, that God often wants us to take the trail less traveled, the narrow road vs. the wide way, as we journey along in life.  For some more pics click here.
