Remembering the good times...

...on this holiday and the freedoms that we have. Also giving thanks to the brave men & women who have so bravely fought for our freedoms. Enjoy being with your family & friends today and have a Happy & Safe 4th of July.
This is a picture of a muddy road under construction in Arizona, on an Indian reservation...The road was about 10 miles long and we were praying that the rain wouldn't come until we finished taking this shortcut.

Jimmy & Brian playing with a chipmunk at a rest stop on Beartooth Highway in Montana. You can see how high in elevation we were by the snow in the background. The picture was taken in the month of July.
Brian & Brandon in the Painted Desert in Arizona.

This was taken the day after Reva & I almost died in Death Valley. This little oasis was about 100 miles out of Las Vegas, in the direction in which we were heading.

Run for your bikes! A storm is approaching in Pine Moutain, Kentucky.
This is Sharon & daughter T on a bridge we just crossed on a bike ride. Sharon went on to lose one of her shoes in the rushing waters of the raging creek.

That's Reva watching as a young man takes this unusual looking fish off his line. We were on an all day deep sea fishing trip, that took off from Virginia Beach in Virginia.

My other pictures didn't get loaded because blogger refused to load anymore. I will try to post them next.

As you can see by the pictures I have posted, I enjoy the freedom of traveling and seeing as much of the United States as I can...And the most enjoyable way to travel is, with my family.

Great pictures Sandy. Thanks for sharing them. Looks like some very good, fun times :)
Yes, this is a great country and I give thanks daily for our brave men and women who put themselves in harms way so that we may keep our freedoms!
I get so angry with people who bash America when this country does so much to help the world.
Happy Fourth to you too. Hope you and your family have a great day!

Yes, we are truly blessed to live in a country where we have the freedom to just jump into (or onto) our vehicles and drive forever! (As long as we can afford the gas).
