This Allsop Lake area is spectacular - if you haven't been there already you should check it out sometime.
Have a good one.
Looks like a great peak.
One of these days, I'll finally get out west and tackle on like that. Something spectacular that doesn't require a technical climb.
peak, and great job on the page
I recalled that Beulah is an obscure Hebrew word, which has sprung to modern popularity for obscure reasons, but couldn't retell the story to Grizz during our yesterday's traverse of the peak.
OK, here is our take on it. The name literally means "married" in Hebrew, and it is used in Isaiiah to compare the Land of Israel with a married woman, no longer abandoned and forsaken, but now loved and cherished.
But the word has also a clear alliteration to "Beauty" in modern English, with a cool Old Testament ring to it, which is probably the reason why American preachers started using a partial back-translation "Beulah Land" instead of ordinarily-sounding "Married Land".
Over time, the word Beulah got a life of its own in modern American English, quite unrelated to its Hebrew meaning and its Old Testament usage. "Beulah Land" is commonly understood as a poetic term fo Heaven these days, and girls name Beulah is commonly explained as "to be married" (no child brides here doh!)
Technically Beulah is used in the religious law to signify a bride who isn't a virgin. The US preachers got it slightly difefrently :)
BTW GeoPooch is still taking the trails ... very slowly. Getting closer to 17 years of age...
