Sitting on a throne sitting in a shrine. Lincoln's Memorial Washington D.C.

Rolling Thunder Rally
"Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in 1865. He led the country through a great constitutional, military and moral crisis — the American Civil War — preserving the Union while ending slavery and promoting economic and financial modernization. Reared in a poor family on the western frontier, Lincoln was mostly self-educated. He became a country lawyer, an Illinois state legislator, and a one-term member of the United State House of Representatives but failed in two attempts at a seat in the United States Senate. He was an affectionate, though often absent, husband and father of four children".

The ultimate sacrifice

 Giving it all for love of country. 
Mom and Dad you be proud.
They gave the most so we could have.

 On our way to Bryce Canyon we went through the tiny town of Panguich, Utah. ("Panguich" is the Paiute Indian word meaning "Big Fish")  This is a great town that is a flashback to the old west.  These are pictures of the main street and a great little gem-Cowboy Collectibles.


There were plenty of photo opportunities.  Here we are hanging out with our "friend"  Sam and a group of his "poker" buddies.  The people are incredibly friendly in this town.  It is a great place to take a peaceful stroll and browse around the cute, unique shops.
