About 10 miles from the shoe tree (heading East towards Dayville) is a turnoff which allows you to pull over and enjoy the surrounding view. I call this shot "Gateway to Grant County", for between the two cliffs, you can see a partial scenic view of mountains and hills which belongs to Grant County. The county line begins where these cliffs meet at the bottom of the valley on Highway 26. For those of you who have not visited this part of the country, I will display photos on this blog from time to time, to show the varied and ruggedly beautiful country which exists in this high desert region.

The below YouTube video, beautifully presented by Eva Necka, expresses that very thought through wonderful pictures and song by Gregorian, called “Voyage Voyage”. In case you haven't heard their music, they are a German band which performs Gregorian chant-inspired versions of modern pop and rock songs in both vocal and instrumental harmony. The lyrics are in French, but you can catch the idea through viewing the amazing scenes that were photographed in different parts of the world. God’s beautiful creation is everywhere in color and in form and also in music. The video can be put in full screen if you want to view the full effect of these spectacular scenes.

I think of the inward voyage or journey we all take as we live as sojourners on planet earth. Spiritually speaking, the journey takes us many places, with twists and turns as on a mountain road. We cross rivers and valleys, high and low places. We experience joy and delight and also despair and division. We feel love and we feel pain. The Father of Lights is with us throughout our journey and if we train our spiritual ear and listen close in heart, we can sense His encouraging Presence, giving a new surge of hope and strength to continue on as His children of Light.
