Pepperwood to Dyerville Overlook (Ave of the Giants)

This was the first day that Tina walked with me. We’ve known each other from our Mini Church for several years, but this is the first time we’ve spent one-on-one time together.  She grew up in this area and is combining a ‘homecoming’ visit with 4 days of walking with me – it was a sweet time of fellowship!

Spotlights This Week:
Always: Hope Chapel Missions
Charity Spotlight: Focus on the Family
Church Spotlight: Rio Dell Baptist Church – Rio Dell, CA
Church Spotlight: Eureka Faith Center – Eureka, CA

We ended up going 10.5 miles today so that we would end at a good place to park the car tomorrow. We stopped walking at the former site of the town of Dyerville, which was totally destroyed by the 1955 Eel River flood.

We’re farther inland on this stretch of road, so the walking temps are getting warmer. We got an early start and much of the route is in shade, so the heat didn’t affect us. But later in the day as I drove through on my way back to Eureka there were some portions of the route that showed 100 degrees on my car display!

For there is hope for a tree, when it is cut down, that it will sprout again, and its shoots will not fail. Though its roots grow old in the ground and its stump dies in the dry soil, at the scent of water it will flourish and put forth sprigs like a plant. ~ Job 14:7-9
