We were so happy to be invited to attend Easter Sunrise Service at “The Castle” in Guernsey State Park. It was serene and beautiful, clearly a place to hear God and the perfect start to Easter Weekend.
The Castle is a historic stone structure built by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the 1930s. It sits on a bluff overlooking the North Platte River and surrounding area.

Chilly, but beautiful Easter morning.

Guernsey State Park is very large, with 7 campgrounds, hiking trails, yurts and of course the outstanding scenery.
George standing on the bridge over what use to be Tunnel No. 2 inside of Guernsey State Park. It isn’t pretty to look at but it is another interesting piece of history here.
Coal trains run through here 7 days a week from the north.
Guernsey’s annual Easter celebration was in the town center park and we were so happy to lend a hand! We help toss out 3,500 Easter eggs for the children’s Easter Egg Hunt.
This precious little girl made me think of our kiddos back home. We miss them.
George and Dave (from Camp Guernsey) grilled up 300 hot dogs with Faith Fellowship Church.
Faith Fellowship is a wonderful little Guernsey church … great people and pastor.
The kids anxiously waiting for the word GO!
(Rachel and Sean sent us pictures of our kiddos at their Easter Egg Hunt in Texas. Looked like they all had a great time!)
