Milepost 40 to Milepost 30

Once again, my start/stop points didn’t include any towns, so they can only be defined by Monterey County mileposts. Interestingly, today seemed like it was going to be one of the more ‘remote’ days, but in reality there were quite a few houses. Actually, I doubt we ever went more than a half mile without seeing a house. They were all tucked away and you would never know they were there. The only hints were the mailboxes. Even so, you’d still never see them when driving by in a car – but they were fairly obvious as we took the ‘slow road’.

Spotlights This Week:
Always: Hope Chapel Missions
Charity Spotlight: Intervarsity Christian Fellowship
Church Spotlight: Harvestlands Foursquare Church – Salinas, CA

One of the marked Vista Points was closed, and full of construction vehicles – and a helicopter. They were replacing telephone poles up on the ridge, and Shena (who drove us to our start point) said they hang the workers off a tether from the helicopter. We did see them land once, and it most definitely looked like they had a couple of guys ‘hanging out’!

My favorite photo of the day:



The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever…. ~ Psalm 138:8

  1. You continue to inspire us with your vivid descriptions and amazing photos. So much is missed in our “Hectic” paced society sometimes. The Swaziland team is heading off today. We will be thinking about you and praying for you as well! Ours too will be a road little traveled. Most folks will never contemplate the reality of a care point far removed from the city dwellers where 3,000 orphans are fed each day. Thank you for your support of Hope Chapel Missions, you are making people more aware of these things going on in far corners of the globe! See you when we get back I hope, and many of us are looking forward to walking a few miles with you.
