August Holidays

One of the August Holidays that I love is National Parks Month.  I'm really looking forward to working on this section, as there are so many gorgeous Parks throughout the United States.

This picture is Leigh's son, Ryan sitting "on the edge" at Yosemite National Park in California. (this picture freaked out his Mom who is very afraid of heights!) I do love the reflection on the water though - this is definitely a very beautiful photo! Photo Credit: Ryan's Wife, Marlene
