A few years ago, I went hiking with some friends on the Chain Lakes Trail in the Mount Baker Wilderness. We started at Artist Point at the end of the Mt Baker Highway and this picture was taken on the descent to the Bagley Lakes and Heather Meadows.

I thought this little wetland was very pretty and peaceful (after a long slog) and it reminds me of the 23rd Psalm.

The LORD is my shepherd;
I have everything I need.
He lets me rest in green pastures.
He leads me to calm water.
He gives me new strength.
He leads me on paths that are right
for the good of his name.
Even if I walk through a very dark valley,
I will not be afraid,
because you are with me.
Your rod and your shepherd’s staff comfort me.
Psalm 23:1-4 (NCV)
