July 4th, photo of the day: Summer

Happy Fourth of July (to all my American readers)! :)

Do you have any big plans for today? Maybe you’re picnicking with family and friends, or just waiting for the fireworks to start.

When the Fourth finally rolls around it always feels fully like summer has begun. Even if the weather doesn’t completely agree, the fourth means summer.

This was taken a couple years ago at Diamond Lake in Oregon. A good chunk of the Crater Lake National Park staff head up there each Fourth to enjoy the show. If you’re ever in the central/southern Oregon area during the first week of July, it’s a fun place to check out!
