Sometimes we look at sights in nature but don't really see. While hiking in the woods the other day, it became a realization that we need to open our heart and eyes to see the beauty of the simple things in nature with each season. There is so much order and purpose in His creation. God has given us awesome beauty in this world to see and enjoy... if we would but stop to see and feel it. Join us as this blog is about stopping to see the real beauty around touch and feel it... "Through the Lens".

Choosing a Path

Being in an RV makes it easier to go to National Forests, State Parks or even National Parks.  Once in those areas, we have many opportunities to seek paths that will take us to specific destinations or to even start down the path not knowing where it would lead.  Exploring different paths is a great way to see things you may never have seen if you don't explore.



We have all taken paths that lead us to magnificent views or awesome sights and then, I would imagine, we have all taken paths that led us to some dangerous situations or places we didn’t want to be.


Many of the paths that we take are man made while others are just natural.   It doesn’t matter because both can be pleasing to the eye.

When we get to our destination, we are speechless at the beauty or awesomeness we see.   Then there are some paths that can be a bit rough or not very traveled but still are interesting and worthy of exploration.

I would also imagine that we all have, at some time, taken the wrong path creating problems for ourselves.  The beauty of exploration is that we can always find our way back to the right path.  

We wish you many happy moments on the paths that you take and may you find lots of beauty and joy in your explorations.  

The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in Him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with His hand.  Seek His will in all you do and He will show you which path to take.

Psalms 37:23-24


  1. So much amazing scenery all around us all we need to do is look.

  2. So much amazing scenery all around us if we just open our eyes and look.

  3. So much amazing scenery all around us if we just open our eyes and look.

  4. Yes you are so right about the exploring aspect of the RV lifestyle. The magic of RVing for us has always been to get out there and find new and exciting places that interest us. How very fortunate many of us are to be able to do that.
