Ala Archak

Even though Bishkek is usually unbearably hot in August, in just about 20 minutes by car you can be at the base of the mountains here that still have snow on their peaks. A bunch of us did just that recently. We went to Ala Archak to walk and enjoy "the nature". Unfortunately it was rainy and cold so fog covered the tops of the peaks. Still, it was beautiful and a nice break from the heat in the city.

This picture is so beautiful! It just makes me explode with the wonders of God's creation! And we see through the glass dimly. 1 Corin 13:12. Can you imagine what we will see? It boggles the mind!

Barbara: How true! Doesn't it look like Oregon to you, though? I think so! But I'm biased!
