A Table in the Wilderness

It was in the mountains that that Claudia really learned that God is ever present and always cares for His children.

Since she was a very small child, Claudia and her family had spent part of their summers hiking and camping in the California High Sierra. Several weeks each year they put their food, clothing, and sleeping bags on their backs and backpacked into the wilderness areas where they rarely saw any other campers.

On these trips their parents taught the children how to survive in the mountains. Their father showed them the techniques of constructing temporary shelters from plastic drops they carried, of building safe and manageable campfires, of choosing safe footing while climbing. They always made safety the first concern.
