GYC (Generation of Youth for Christ) was the best way to begin the new year! And best of all, it was in Louisville, meaning only a 3hr drive. We were blessed with some beautiful views out our hotel window.

Some of the many skywalks we walked through several times a day. We estimated that we walked about 2+ miles every day during GYC!

January began with a heavy cold spell, lasting longer than usual for Kentucky. We excitedly hiked the icicle-covered  Eagle Falls trail and saw the spectacular wonders of Cumberland Falls and Eagle Falls in ice!

It was like walking through a cave--only the stalactites and stalagtites were formed out of ice! Here's looking up at some hanging above the trail.

The view of Cumberland Falls from the vantage point was beautiful! Not only can you see hundreds of gigantic icicles hanging off the falls, but also a large quantity of broken ice chunks floating below the falls (making it look like snow).

These icicles were completely crystal-clear, despite their dirty ceiling.
