Perhaps it may turn out a sang,
Perhaps turn out a sermon.

Back Home

I had a lot of fun and saw lots of awe-inspiring scenery. I was reminded of how much I love this land, and how the country is worth defending against those who would destroy it -- all enemies, foreign and domestic.

Chapel of the Holy Cross -- Sedona, AZ

Wupatki Ruins/Sunset Crater National Park -- AZ

South Rim of the Grand Canyon
Monument Valley, Utah
Wilson's Arch outside of Moab, UT
South Window, Arches National Park, UT
Turret Arch, Arches NP, UT
Royal Gorge Bridge
Boot Hill, Dodge City, KS
Wilson's Creek Battlefield near Springfield, MO

All the photos in this post were taken by me -- click to see the larger images.  The Grand Canyon was impressive, but then so was Monument Valley and the Arches National Park, Sedona, Palo Dura, and the Royal Gorge.  I don't have a bucket list.  These are just places I always heard about and had never gotten away to visit until now. 

America is a great land with many great people being yanked around by a pathetic bunch of losers whose time is very short.

Very good photos, Mush.
Welcome home. I agree with you, this country is still worth fighting for!

Welcome back Mush. Nice pics. I love big rocks. Might have to head out west someday.
