4th of July

The 4th of July, the pinnacle of summer, the day we celebrate the birth of our nation. The day is upon us and I can already hear the preparations for festivities in the City Above the Clouds. There are sirens, megaphones and the roar of motors as people gather in the center of town for the fun.

I have a friend who contends that after the 4th, summer is over. Perhaps here, high in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado she is right. Summers are short at 9000 feet. We look forward to the respite from the alpine cold for months and when the snows finally stop in May it seems like the 4th is upon is in no time. Before you know it, the kids are getting ready to head back to school.

But I can’t worry about that today. There are celebrations going on all over town and there is much for a Recreation Examiner to examine. According to the town web site, Memorial Park will be hosting the biggest event of the year for Woodland Park and today it is within walking distance for me. So stay tuned to my¬†Examiner account, I hope to have a good article and a lot of fun photographs to share from the day.

Have a great and safe holiday!
