I take pictures.

on the fourth day of july, in the two thousand and seventh year after the death of our Lord, i went to an annual neighborhood breakfast and a cabin and a rodeo. because out here in utah we celebrate proper.
utah is so stinking gorgeous that i would marry it if i could.

here are some wildflowers. they grow in the wild and are very rarely captured on film. this is a special treat and my july 4th gift to you. your welcome.

everyone knows that any rodeo that is worth its bunk starts off with a stirring rendition of the national anthem. doesn't this just make your soul soar? i know it does mine. ride em cowboy. all this non stop, action packed excitement is why most people go to the rodeo. but this is why i go to the rodeo. look at that athleticism! he's single ladies. {just kidding, i have no idea if he's single.}

and this is why my dad goes to the rodeo.

check out this delicious utah summer sky. is that a killer sunset or what?

and in case you didn't see enough fireworks last night, here are some pictures of fireworks. yawn.

oooh! ahhh!

the end.

Great pictures of a proper Utah 4th of July! I like the last one best. It's proof that adults still get impressed from time to time.

Thanks for sharing!

I needed to see this post. Apparently they don't celebrate the fourth of July in Germany, so I really appreciated each picture!

If a polygamous union was allowed, I'd marry Utah, too. I haven't been to many places who's beauty rivals the Wasatch Mountains.
I've read a lot of 4th of July posts and I think this one gets my vote for best of all. I think it's the Rodeo--cowboys are just so American to me...and sexy, too. Great post. Yee-haw!
