04 July 2009

There's more to it than hot dogs and explosives launched into the sky. Don't forget that.

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

Happy Birthday, America. May freedom forever reign.

Happy Independence Day.

jb- i used to rock climb. is that tallulah gorge in that pic?

Jeff B said...

William: Nope, that's Eldorado Canyon, just outside of Boulder, CO.

The route is "Rewritten," and is perhaps the best 5.7 route around. Just an amazing climb (though, Mescaline Daydream in Tallulah is pretty amazing as well.)

With a name like Mescaline Daydream, it should be impressive.
