America the Beautiful

America the Beautiful GIF

Before embarking in 2010 on what turned out to be a four-year-long, coast-to-coast U.S. road trip, we couldn’t possibly appreciate–or even comprehend–the stunning beauty of our home country. The diversity of its natural wonders is perhaps unique in the world. So on this, the 239th anniversary of a revolutionary experiment in democracy, we celebrate our nation’s founding by reminiscing over just a few of the remarkable scenes we had the pleasure of seeing during our journey from sea to shining sea.

Happy Birthday, America. You truly are beautiful.

    Loved this! Great photos……are you in Croatia yet? Trogir is worth a stop.;)

      We’re in Bosnia and Herzegovina at the moment. Heading back to Croatia tomorrow. We plan to visit Trogir as a day-trip from Split.

    Hi Brian & Shannon,

    Love it, well done. Travelling with Sam to the USA later this month, will be his first time on US soil. Conference in Vegas and then a week in Utah: Zion, Bryce, and back to the magic of Fruita is the likely itinerary 😊😊 #fathersontrip
