Chimney Rock on 911

Spending 911 in the Park

What Better Place to Spend this Solemn Day

Chimney Rock on 911
Listening to the news this morning and remembering 911 was more than I could bear. It has  been 12 years, but seems only like last week. With all of the craziness in the world, I just needed to be outside somewhere in a tranquil setting.

What better place to spend 911 than in a National or State Park?!!? Apparently, dozens of others thought the same thing. Although no one was on the Four Seasons Trail, when I got up to the parking lot, there were several dozen people. Climbing the stairs to the Chimney was poignant as the flag was flying at half mast.

I am so proud to be living in this country where we allocate money and resources to protecting our parks and public lands. And, I am thankful for all of those that are willing to fight for our freedoms and our way of life and our land.

 

Life is short, smile while you still have teeth.
