Stars & Stripes: American Flag Photography & Recipes | Memorial Day Weekend on FamilyFreshCooking.com

Wow! Can you believe Memorial Day weekend is here? Stars & Stripes.

What symbolizes our beautiful country more that our regal flag? I photograph it every chance I get. It glows with color, light and freedom. What does Memorial Day mean to you?

Beyond the BBQ’s, suds & splashes, this is a time to pay respect and tribute to those who have passed while serving & protecting us. Let’s honor those who dedicate their lives to us…thank you.

It is lovely when folks display the American flag with pride.

Whether it be painted or hung with pride…

The click below is from February this year. Helicopters buzzed over our box canyon here in Telluride, CO.

They blasted the mountain for avalanche control. A very rare experience that happens every few years if needed.

The locals lined the streets and cheered. It was a beautiful winters day.

Let’s flip to warm weather…
