I took this shot of a dried yucca flower yesterday when hiking around my brother-in-law's house. He lives beside some rough park space with a fabulous view of Pikes Peak when you hike to the top of a hill. I created a photo set on Flickr with quite a few shots of the landscape.
This is probably my favourite American holiday. I hope all my American friends have a great day. My family will spend part of the day in Colorado Springs at my Brother in Law's house stuffing ourselves silly.
