Spring Flowers on Zigzag Mountain

One of my favorite places to hike is the trail into Burnt Lake. Once you reach the lake, you can continue the on trail #775 up Zigzag Mountain for great views of Mount Hood to the east and Mt. Jefferson to the south. In June, the while flowers are spectacular!

Now for the really exciting news:

My new book, “The Story of Israel: A short history of the land and its people,” has been released! The book traces the people of Israel through the Bible and up to modern times with an emphasis on God’s great plan to restore blessing to His creation through the descendants of Abraham. It is the story of Israel, but you will discover that it is the story of Jesus, the apostles, and God’s people today as well. I am excited to share this story with you!

 The Story of Israel is available on Amazon.com for $8.95. The book is also available in Kindle edition for $4.95. If you purchase the paperback book, you can buy the Kindle edition for just $.99. Click on the link below to find my book on Amazon.
