God's Garden in Slovakia

No, these aren't more photos from
Austria - see pics from that part of our trip here.
While Slovakia's High Tatra mountains cover less land area,
they're also quite spectacular.

We were blessed with the opportunity to
return to Slovakia as part of the leadership team
for a youth camp this summer
in the shadow of the High Tatras, 
a glorious corner of creation.

"...the hills are clothed with gladness. 
The meadows are covered with flocks and
the valleys are mantled with grain;
they shout for joy and sing."
Psalm 65:12

Once again, several of these photos are
happily shared by our
team photographer and good friend,
J Harris (see her fantastic shots of Austria here).

Window boxes are great.

Slovakia offers peaceful countryside...

Orava Castle
...and ancient castles hinting at long ago battles.

Spissky Castle ruins.

Archive photo - Window box on our home in Slovakia.

 While living in Slovakia, raising my children there, 
the people and land stole my heart.
If you ever have the chance, be sure to visit.

Thanks so much for sharing! I had no idea what Slovakia looked like - and this was not what I imagined. Very beautiful. Very majestic.

This was a truly wonderful trip. The photos are all beautiful, I can not imagine being in such a scenic place. Everywhere you look is magical.

Catherine: It was a WONDERFUL trip! We've been back in the US for 5 years now, and it was very special to go back, indescribable really.
Toni: Slovakia has a lot of beauty! There's much more than I could show here.
Holly: This is not all of Slovakia - the cities and towns where the majority of the population lives are quite different.
GWGT: I'm very thankful that we had this opportunity. I don't show photos of people here, but we have many special friends there and it was wonderful to see them again.
