Sunday, June 24, 2012 We began Sunday (the Lord’s Day) with a devotion based on John 11. I am so thankful that my Creator and Redeemer has allowed me to enjoy this awesome part of His creation with family and friends for many years.

After pancakes for breakfast we headed back to Fat Lake to see if we could be successful fishing for Lake Trout. Another member of the group did catch one but overall it was just an opportunity to view a beautiful lake. I confess I’m not much of a Lake Trout fisherman but I’ve always said I could enjoy the trip even if I didn’t catch anything …today proved that point. After lunch we portaged back out of Fat into Eugene and then over to Steep Lake. Another gorgeous lake with time to explore and climb one of the very steep rock walls. In attempting to get a picture of a beautiful white pine on small cliff at the edge of the water I got an unexpected chance to swim in the lake with a nice set of bruised ribs. Oh well, it was worth it. The view from above the lake was spectacular. Back to the Eugene campsite with a variety of Mountain House specials to end the day and climb into the hammock to sleep and get away from the mosquitos.
