Our Patriot’s Journey

cookiestarbar

October 30, 2009 --

We had the pleasure of meeting your son’s photo at the Big Horn Reservoir on the border of SE Montana and Wyoming.  Robert’s photo was at the Devil’s Canyon overlook.  We decided to take him along on our 3-week vacation, take photos along the way and send them to you.

We first send our condolences and prayers for the loss of your son. We thank the service men and women that are over there fighting for us.  Whether one believes in the war or not, they are there and that is the reality.  We thank Robert.

From the reservoir we took him with us to Buffalo, WY and helped a friend in their new Habitat for Humanity house.  Next we headed to Thermopolis, WY, the largest natural hot springs in the world.  We took him soaking and exploring.  We headed to Flaming Gorge Reservoir, border of Wyoming and Utah, for six days.  We then headed for Lake Powel for a few days.  We then headed to Boulder, UT and camped and took in a beautiful six-mile hike to a famous waterfall called Lower Calf Creek Falls.  Beautiful scenery, easy and adverturesome hiking, red rock and sand combo trail.  Here is where we left Robert -- on the trail head sign.

We thank you for the opportunity to meet your son, say prayers for his family and keep us in remembrance of the reality that there is a war going on every day.  We thank you for the privilege to take Robert someplace he might never have been before.
