I hadn't been up to camp since the Waldo Canyon fire happened two years ago. I'd seen pictures and heard the stories of how Jesus put a circle of protection around Eagle Lake during that week, but it was completely different being there in person. Evidence of the fire is still there, of course, and will be for a very long time, but it is a wonderful reminder of how Jesus saved that place so that it can continue to be used for his purposes. It is a beautiful thing.
I loved going back to Eagle Lake with the people who helped make camp so special for me in the first place. It was so fun seeing old camp staff and campers from my previous summers there. We spent the morning remembering past experiences, talking to old friends, and breathing in the fresh mountain air.
