And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward.
For a hike in the mountains, we always take water. The Mad Creek Trail in Colorado is a lovely, well maintained trail, mostly level, and partly in shade. There are no large loose rocks to turn your ankles, no rivers to cross. Wildlife are rarely seen mid-day when most people make the hike, and we saw only healthy dogs of all shapes and breeds bounding along with their owners. We walked a total of four and a half miles in almost three hours, exhausting our out-of-shape bodies.
