All God's Creatures Sunday

We were on a quest early this morning to find the Mexican border and 16,000 American flags being put up along that border in a little town called Palominas. There aren't too many roads off of the main (LOL) highway that run down to the border.

Smith Rd. is unpaved, with only a few houses. If you let your mind go there, it can be unnerving, thinking about the proximity to the border and the people smugglers, and drug smugglers that could be encountered in this area. But being daylight, we kept on the teeth-jarring, tractor paved road.



Dead End. Could there have been another road that goes to the border?

Disappointing. Imagine seeing 16,000 American flags on the Fourth of July!!! How cool would that have been? Luckily, so as not to have been a total waste of time, we came across these guys along that same road.




After returning home & doing some research, we found out that while we were on the right road, there is a small right turn that will take us to the flags. We'll head back there tomorrow morning for loads of pictures. But for this afternoon, we're headed to the Veteran's Memorial Park to see the jets fly over, and to hear our awesome Governor, Jan Brewer, speak.
Have a wonderful 4th! Be safe!
