Flags!

July 4th Independence Day.
It is a strange feeling being a Brit in the US on Independence Day. But there are no signs of hostility! šŸ™‚
Today is our last day on the road before returning back across the border to British Columbia, Canada. The clouds are back, there is slight drizzle on windscreen and mountains have disappeared. But Stars and Stripes are every where, and red white and blue themes adorn every shop window. A motor bike with a large American flag speeds past us on the highway
