    Thanks for the pictures. Earl Palmer came to our church, Fremont in Sacramento so many years ago to teach a class on C.S. Lewis it was so great. He was there when my first Presbyterian pastor, Darrell Johnson was there. So you have a lot of familiar faces on your site.
    Also thanks for all that you are writing on the problems in the PCUSA. I am going to be part of two different Church forums on GA and I intend to direct people to your site.

    Laity Lodge area is beautiful along with being the beginning of an amazing river (The Frio).. Hard to beat the crystal clear waters. Thanks for sharing this..
    Take Care,
