After being sick the last week with the flu and still on antibiotics, I ventured out today and took the girls hiking in Harpers Ferry.
It was just a little cold--um, maybe a lot cold--but we slogged through the trails anyway and had a great time.
The water falling off the cliffs was still freezing on the rocks underneath and it made for some nice pictures.
One interesting photo that I've attached was of the water that had a veneer of red over the top--first it looked like maybe it was a tarp, but up close, we saw it was just like a carpet of red algae over the water--it was pretty spectacular.
I couldn't help thinking how perfect this is for Passover that begins on Monday evening, because it brought alive the image to me of G-d delivering the Israelites from servitude and splitting the real Red Sea for them to cross through to freedom.
While we didn't attempt to cross this red water, it was an amazing natural sight to behold (thank you G-d). ;-)
