July 4th marks Independence Day here in the United States, as the country celebrates it’s 232nd birthday. People across the land celebrate it in many different ways from gatherings and barbecues, spending time with family and of course watching fireworks.
I recall growing up outside of Chicago you could be in one place and see the fireworks from different cities in the western suburbs going off into the summer sky. Colorado has quite a few firework displays taking place in the metro area over the holiday weekend. The question is do you go to one, or head to the foothills to see them across the metro area as I recall growing up in the Chicago area.
Fireworks aside, the 4th of July is about the United States and one of the symbols of the country the American Flag. The following image was taken last year in Missoula, Montana.
Have a great, happy and safe 4th!
