Rather spontaneously my husband and I decided to celebrate the Fourth of July by climbing a ’14er’. It is quite a popular outdoor activity in Colorado. Although you often share the summit with a bunch of other hikers (we probably saw close to 50 people last Sunday), it is well worth the effort. We were lucky to have perfect weather as we celebrated the freedom this great nation offers.
Yes there are so many problems in the country, and in the world — but when I stop to think how fortunate I am to live in a peaceful place where I can choose my activity for the day, I feel very lucky and grateful.
What a treat to be able to be able to experience this view — and the panorama we soaked in from the summit!
Or to see these flowers that mother nature created — along with a myiad of varieties and colors — along the trail.
How do you celebrate the freedom this great nation has to offer?
