White Rock-Shores Lake Loop
Seasons come and go; they have a beginning and an end. Autumn usually marks the start of harvests-a process of gathering mature crops from the fields. A time of great celebration...a time to reap what you have sowed!
I love Autumn! It usually marks a new season for the most of us. It's a new school year...football...the weather cools...and the Holidays are near.
However, the most noticeable change is everything around you when you walk out. All the different colors!!!! But in Texas...the landscape is not quite as dramatic...So we drove up to Arkansas to see the colors!!!
Who: Melissa and Jeremy Hendrix, Sarah (mi linda) Pasquel and your feo!
Mileage: 11 miles roundtrip
elevation gain: 1500'
We drove up on Friday the 4th and camped up on the mountain on CO RD 76. The girls slept in the hatchback of the Prius and we slept next to the car...Our plans to complete the loop came to a halt as soon as we got there. There was a gate on the road that kept you from going up to White Rock TH. Before we drove up this mountain, there was a detour sign to White Rock that I completely ignored...on purpose. Ooops, my bad.
But this worked out for us...the next day, we drove back down to the Lake Shores campgrounds and started our hike from here. We decided to hike the West portion of the loop only...
I wonder what this new season has in store...It's harvest time, so we will see what God has produced. The last season is gone...done. In comes the new...and God offers a harvest to not just replenish...but to also restore. So now that God is doing this good work in you...now what? I don't know what that looks specifically for you...or for that matter, me. But I do know this...For every season there is a purpose.That's reason enough to get excited!
