Just a preview of the tons of pictures you're about to see...and yes, we were totally into selfies. Timed, walk-away selfies and hold-the-camera-out selfies. I'm not even going to feel guilty about it.
We drove through Arches National Park and saw the beauty in the rock formations and distant mountains. The park is huge and after spending an hour and driving and walking to see about 7 arches, called it good. On the way out we read in the brochure there are over 2000 arches in the whole park!!
We then met our niece in Rapid City and got to love on her for a few days and spend time with family and friends there. We got chased by winter weather on our drive to Bozeman and instead detoured to Casper, WY and then continued on to Boise, where we stayed with a dear friend and her charming children and saw my cousin, Patrick.
From there, I dropped Tyler off at the airport in San Francisco for him to do training in FL this week and then drove north again (this time inland) and saw Misty for a night and now am enjoying staying with my friend, Buddy, and her adorable family.
It's hard to fathom the kind of love and hospitality we have been shown the past few weeks. We have experienced so many amazing places around the Western US and reconnected with many old friends. We have been shown great kindness by old friends, and new friends we haven't even met who are preparing for our arrival in South Korea. God has shown us His love through many ways and I am so thankful I can't even find the words.
