Photo Friday (Veteran’s Day)

I know when you hear “Veteran’s Day”  you expect photos of flags, parades or Veterans.  But we celebrate Veteran’s Day by going hiking at Madera Canyon.  Since my husband and I are both veterans we feel we can celebrate however we want.  And for me the freedom to go find a taste of autumn is what makes me happy.  There is not a day that goes by that I don’t remember the sacrifices so many have made for me to have the freedoms that I do.  My heart is filled with all those who served, voluntarily and involuntarily over the course of the years.  A hike may not be a traditional way to honor those who served but it is my way.

IMG_8316Another part of the tradition is hot cocoa and cookies at the end of our hike.  Always the same cookie, oatmeal with reese’s pieces, more fall color!

IMG_8310Okay, here is a picture of a veteran!  I am always curious as to what bloggers look like and if they have a picture how current it is…so here I am!  (Photo taken by my guy down below.)
