It seems I wasn’t able to keep up the WordPress Weekly for too long. I skipped out on blogging last week. I hope my thoughts were missed by some, but I just had too much to do. This week is no different really, but I wanted to post something. I’ve kind of made up for last week with this post because it’s so long… I hope you have the time to read it all. I probably won’t get around to posting a daily photo for the rest of this week but we’ll see how we go. Don’t forget to check out what I’m reading on the web here: My Shared Items from Google Reader.

The photo of the day is from the Mt Baker / Mt Shuksan area in Washington State, USA. This is at Picture Lake, but not the traditional view you see from this location. This is mainly because the water wasn’t still enough as well as me wanting to get a ‘non-cliché’ photo too.
You may have seen this photo before (here), but I have drastically improved it since, so do enjoy the new version…
Today’s photo is from Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. Old Faithful erupts roughly every 90 minutes and draws a huge crowd. This geyser can erupt with a fountain higher than 55m into the air. A fun fact about Old Faithful:
Old Faithful is sometimes degraded by being made a laundry. Garments placed in the crater during quiescence are ejected thoroughly washed when the eruption takes place. Gen. Sheridan’s men, in 1882, found that linen and cotton fabrics were uninjured by the action of the water, but woolen clothes were torn to shreds. — Winser, Henry J. (1883).

I got back from Big Camp yesterday after a great week. It was a very wet week with plenty of rain, but I still managed to get sunburnt on the one morning of sun. In the evening meetings, our speaker, Iki Taimi, presented a number of quality sermons. I’ll be sure to talk about them in the coming weeks. He presented his stuff in a great way and challenged us to step up to the ‘jump zone’ and take the leap.
Today I’ve got a post about the story at the beginning of John 8 – the woman caught in adultery and some photos from Mesa Verde, Colorado. I’ve also got a new section for you: Music. I’ll be recommending individual songs or albums every week, and linking you to them on iTunes.
