And to think that we could have been cursing the blood sucking swarms of mosquitos on the 4th. We are blessed to have inadvertently timed our resupply in Pinedale for the 4th of July! Especially a town with actual 4th of July festivities, and fireworks!
Nothing like good music, good ol’ folk enjoying themselves, little kids dancing to their own rhythm, cold beer and BBQ. America, that’s right!
Despite all the fracture going on in this country and the world, for that matter, this is truly the most special AND beautiful country in the world. If you don’t think so, just walk it and find out. Just like our freedoms, the views don’t come cheap. They are earned every step of the way.
When you travel by foot, you truly see this country for what it is. Beautiful land. Beautiful people. Whether you’re in jeans or shorts. Boots, sneaker or sandals. Cowboy hat, ball cap, or no cap. Don’t be fooled. The true heart of America is kind, especially to strangers. And because of that, I LOVE this country.
I am a Proud American.
