Below is a 2,000 foot granite monolith, such as you would find in Yosemite.
Here I am with JP. JP runs "the Abbey". An experimental, Lutheran intentional community. He is into two things: The Emergent Church and a New Monasticism. JP is married, but lives simply with his family within this Abbey. They focus on health clinics for the poor and providing housing (and community) for those searching for a more authentic Christianity. For you Lutherans out there, JP is to have a cover story in an upcoming issue of "The Lutheran".
We get to the falls. This is the view downstream.
This is a fun hike. The trail is well maintained. There are idiot bars at the end to help prevent you from falling to your death.
This was a fine hike with this extraordinary young man. Nice to have a perspective from him regarding baby boomers, the emergent church, technology and living in simplicity.
