On Sunday afternoon we took a mountain bike jaunt over to what we call the “Tiny Town” overlook . It’s been such a long time.
The bears have sort of taken over this area so I’ve stayed away. But as the cooler weather comes they seem to retreat…so we ventured forth.
Speaking of cooler weather… This poor old fly has been grounded by the cold, reduced to creeping and hopping his days away. .
But he certainly does have a splendid place to do it!
Meanwhile the Paper Mill hums away down below…It is the reason our town exists, so we don’t mind…
Once the largest pulp and paper mill in the world, it has dwindled to a fraction of its former glory. But still the chips come in (the pale ones for paper pulp, the dark ones for fuel to make steam and to generate power)… and every third day a barge full of paper ships out… while “The Hulks” (abandoned concrete ships) do breakwater duty…
I can just imagine God surveying His creation from such a vantage point…
…and declaring it ‘very good’!
“And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day. Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.” Gen.1:31; 2:1
