Dan Ross Will Talk About His Coast to Coast Walk Across England
When working for IBM, my family and I lived in England for 2 years from 1983 to 1985. While living there, I participated in many long distance walks and runs including the 80 mile South Downs Way. England is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, and I loved spending time outdoors while living there. A few years ago a good friend from England mentioned he had completed Alfred Wainwright’s 192 mile Coast to Coast Walk which starts in St. Bees on England’s West coast and ends in Robin Hood’s Bay on the East coast. He mentioned around two-thirds of the walk is spent in three of England’s national parks, namely the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, and the North York Moors. His description of the walk made me immediately add the walk to my “bucket list”. This past May a good friend from Austin, with whom I trekked to Mt. Everest in 2004 and climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in 2008, and I took on the walk.

About Eyes of Faith
Eyes of Faith is a Christian photography interest group where we encourage participants to gather and explore ways we can use photography as an expression of our faith and in community service.
Who is Invited? YOU!
We all see the world differently, and when it comes to matters of faith and religious beliefs we humans come to different conclusions. This group is a Christian photography group and all are welcome. We don’t claim to have all the answers. Maybe you have a strong Christian faith. Maybe you are “spiritual” but don’t affiliate with any religion. Maybe you are still searching for answers, but find yourself stuck with more questions than answers. I bet you might still find this group worthwhile. Even if you are not sure if any of this applies to you, perhaps you might gain some new insights by working on projects with us to create photographs that depict different “faith” related topics. For example, what might “forgiveness” look like in a photograph? So, regardless of where you are on these matters, you are still invited. Come as you are. We also look for ways we can use our photography as a service to the community.
This group is sponsored by Bethany United Methodist Church in NW Austin. You don’t have to be a member of Bethany to attend. All are invited!
