Men's Retreat in the Black Hills

I won't be around the computer 'til Monday. The men of our church are heading out to the Black Hills for a weekend of wild turkey hunts, fishing, hiking and any other blessings God sends our way.

Nice chance to be out with my son a bit before he graduates from high school and heads off to college - although he's headed to a place that gives me all kinds of excuses for trips to the Hills.

One of the blessings already received is that several father/son pairs are going on the trip. Also a number of younger men - this bunch is well below our parish average by age.

Pray for our safe travel, hunting and fishing (yeah, fumbling with fish hooks can mess up one's weekend). May God rest, refresh and inspire us.

Enjoy! Steve would be envious but I won't tell him. ;)

The pic looks like about 2/3 of the way up Harney Peak, looking down at the back side of Mount Rushmore. If you haven't climbed Harney Peak, I highly suggest it on one of your trips out to see Tim Jr. at the School of Mines! Give me enough advanced warning...I'll go with you!

It was a great time. Two of the guys went up to the top of Harney Peak, which was foggy and no kind of view. Still a great day.
