The Last Pictures

This past weekend, our youth group went to Ponca, Arkansas to float on the Buffalo River. It was a great trip and we had a ton of fun. 

I wanted to document the trip with pictures, but was concerned about water damaging my nice camera, so I brought my old camera instead and carefully kept it wrapped inside a double layer of ziplock bags. 

Unfortunately, when we went to hike to Hemmed-In-Hollow, I slipped on a rock and fell, jacking up my back and breaking the LCD display on my camera (once again causing me to reflect on the benefits and limitations of planning ahead).

Still, I was able to get some pictures of our trip. A few of them are posted below (you should be able to click on the pictures and see larger versions).

Obligatory group photo in front of and on 1940s fire truck.
The part of the Buffalo we were floating was bordered by bluffs that were hundreds of feet tall. 
Several from our group enjoyed jumping off of bluffs.
A closer look at the tops of some of the bluffs.
Hemmed-In-Hollow Falls, the highest waterfall between the Rockies and Appalachians (209 feet). My own fall took place just after taking this picture.
We had a great weekend! It was great to spend time in such beautiful country, and I was reminded yet again that, “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork” (Psalm 19.1).
