Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil....

OK. Maybe the title is a little melodramatic, but after church Sunday, my brother drove us down the Road to Nowhere. The National Park opens one of the paths off of it to traffic twice a year to allow families to take vehicles up the trail to visit cemeteries that lie along the route. It was quite a trek (for me) once we abandoned the 4-wheel-drive van and began to walk the foot path.
I was still in my Sunday clothes so I took off my shoes and hiked barefoot. I faced and overcame a major fear walking this footbridge! "Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10. After all this work, we missed the turn off for this particular cemetery! We even tried to locate another one on the way back to the Road to Nowhere! My brother was the only one of the three of us to actually see it. Gary and I had to stop half way there. He said none of the tombstones were carved, but there was an upright stone at the head and one at the feet of each of the few graves at that spot. It was a MOST interesting adventure!
