The Ersity of Was – The beauty of my Idaho

My friend Hinsel kept posting photos of this beautiful place. I hounded him for a while and he decided to entrust me with its location. Whether that trust was deserved or not, I thank him from the bottom of my heart. Nestled out in the sage brush of Idaho’s high desert, is a location he named, “The Ersity of Was.”

It’s one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. My wife and I headed out on a Monday morning to experience it. We got to drive the Jeep through a creek, met some cows and met a cowboy that was one of the most pleasant people I’ve ever met. Sitting on a rock watching the water flow by, all I could think about was how in the midst of all the troubles of this fallen world, the majesty of God’s creation still shines through.

The world is a mirror of infinite beauty, yet no man sees it. It is a Temple of Majesty, yet no man regards it. It is a region of Light and Peace, did not man disquiet it. It is the Paradise of God.
