The Great Divide Trail
On July 4th, I will begin a journey on the Great Divide Trail. The Great Divide Trail traverses the continental divide between Alberta and British Columbia, wandering through the vast wilderness of the Canadian Rocky Mountains for more than 1100 kilometres. (See http://www.greatdividetrail.com)
My grandfather was essentially a pioneer farmer on the Saskatchewan prairie from the 1920s through the 1960s. Because of the rich heritage that my grandparents passed on, my heart has always been tender toward my mother’s native land. I can think of no better way to explore this wondrous country than trekking for two months along its rugged spine.
The man who in harmony with nature, attempts the discovery of more of her meanings, is just seeking out the things of God. –George MacDonald
