OH...we had to stop at the Lincoln Monument too on the way to Denver. It is a really nice rest stop just outside of Laramie on the 1-80 freeway. Kind of a freakishly BIG head of Abraham Lincoln but still neat to see nonetheless.

One day about 9 years ago, Mark was driving around Salt Lake City. He thought he would just drive up Big Cottonwood canyon to see what was at the end. He knew there were ski resorts but wondered what else. What he found has become a great favorite place for us as a family to go visit. It is Silver Lake....it is a small natural lake with a boardwalk path all around. (nice because we always had small kids in strollers) It is a natural "water-shed" area. We have seen so much wildlife...including moose. It's beautiful in the summer but the fall is spectacular as well!
We had a nice picnic and walk around the lake. Rachel, Molly & Macee

" what do we mean by patriotism in the context of our times...a patriotism that puts country ahead of self; a patriotism which is not short frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime."
Adlai StevensonLet's all be grateful for the great country we live in. Let's all not take for granted our freedoms. Be proud to be an American. Times may be tough....time to count your blessings and realize how much we truly have.
