The weather isn\'t bad here. It only rained twice last week, the first time for three days and the second time for four days.

Woah! Very humbling. Great shots.

There used to be a sign just outside of Chilliwack on the way to Hope, it said "Prepare to meet God". I don't follow the Church but I do believe in Nature, and being in the outdoors has always filled that little niche some call religion.

Wow, nomad. You're over 500 posts.
I would have to agree with you on the nature thing.

That sign always gives me the creeps. I start thinking about being smoked by an 18 wheeler on the hwy! <img src=icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle>

See you on the mountain!

That sign freaks me out too. When I see it, I always finger the seatbelt for reassurance.

Ron, I liked your disclaimer "not pushing religion", but if you go into nature and have a "Spiritual Moment..", that's o.k. Whatever reason you go to the hills for, let people know what that means for you. For some, they go to see the handiwork of God and feel His presence when there in "His Creation". Others have a very different spiritual experience with a very different god. Some will go because they know the wife will not follow.(phew) Whatever it is, this is the place to voice your thoughts and opinons unashamed.

Animals are my friends...and my friends taste good barbequed!

Ron ; I remember getting the book for someone.It was a very good read.
Thanks for reminding me,I forgot all about it.I think Chapters still has it.

When I found the skull in the woods I immediately called the police , but began to wonder : Who was this person and why did he have antlers ?

Nice pic Nomad. This was taken just after the sign heading west. Must have something to do with the sign in the area. If you look closly you can see a cascading waterfall for an optical illusion effect.

It is a creepy sign. It's obviously been done professionally too; I recognise the font from my graphic design education days. ('Antique Olive', if anyone was curious, even though it doesn't look antique at all.)

The eighteen-wheeler-on-the-Coquihalla story reminded me of my own 'almost met God face-to-face' experience. We had just passed The Sign, actually, and were heading east. I don't know how it happened, because I was asleep, but I assume my friend the driver thought he'd take a little nap too, because when I woke up we were flying through the air. I think we must've flipped end-over-end a few times. We broke a pile of bones -- nine or ten vertebrae between us -- and the amazing thing is that we're still walking and hiking and whatnot. It threw that sign into perspective; I wonder if that was the motivation behind the sign.

Anyway, I guess God did kinda show up; otherwise I don't know how we survived that crash, let alone be able to walk afterwards.

Wow, that is quite the story Paul and welcome to CT. It's refreshing to hear someone associate a potential meeting with God through life rather than death.
