Previously, when trying to describe the country we hunted in Alaska, I referred to it as a place of “brutal beauty” but that is inadequate to capture the heart of it. Some might refer to it as a God’s place this time of year. I refer to it as a God-bejeweled place. We were often reminded of the glass sculptures of Paul Chihuly as we studied the glaciers and ice floes. I love the quote by Alan Hovhaness that I read while waiting: “I’ve always regarded nature as the clothing of God.” That quote reminds me of another from the Scriptures: “The Lord reigns; He is robed in majesty.” Psalm 93:1
The goat and deer are currently being mounted by Shawn Andres at Alpine Artistry in Arlee, Montana. We anticipate their arrival and the renewed gratitude their presence will evoke of the trip!
