Gunnison Timberline Overlook
(A Rainy Mid-Day Walk Near Cottonwood Pass, Colorado - August 7, 2007)
It was one of those days where I knew I had to get out
in nature for awhile, despite the fact that it has been
quite rainy and dreary for a number of consecutive days now.
At the risk of using overly religious language, I simply needed to
spend some quality time with God. Somewhere in wilderness. Somewhere
quiet and without distractions. I am facing one of those crossroads
where I have a choice to continue down the path of doing things
"my way" with my life, or to surrender my will over to the care of God.
I can tell you Jesus Christ has done great - no, downright amazing! - things
in my life, but I still sometimes struggle with the foolish and delusional
thinking that I know what's best for my life. It's all about letting go of my
self-centeredness, pride and investment in my reputation, and becoming more like my master.
"He must become greater. I must become less." (John 3:30)
So I ended up at an overlook near Cottonwood Pass, located about 0.5 miles
west on Gunnison County Road 209. It was raining lightly and intermittently during
my walk and wandering, but did not observe lightning and thunder
anywhere out there. It was so nice to be out there and did my best with the camera.
Enjoy the photos below!
All the best,
