Freedom to Roam

                The liberty principle for this Freedom Friday is the simple fact that Americans are free to roam wherever they desire in the nation.  As an American I thoroughly enjoy this freedom and have traveled much. 

                I have traveled through much of our nation on cross-country trips – from our northern border to our southern border and from our West Coast to our East Coast.  Each region is different but beautiful in its own way.

                I travel outside of Alaska much more during the winter than the summer and spend more time in the western and southern states than the northern and eastern parts of the country because of cold and snow.  I hope to all of the states in the near future but know I will have to miss Alaskan summer to do so.

                I have also seen much of the great State of Alaska by air, road, snow, and water.  I have traveled most of the road system, flown over much of the rest of the state, covered much too much territory on snow machines, and traveled by boat on both rivers and ocean.  We live in a beautiful state, with each new sight being more beautiful than the previous.

                Summer brings trips into the wilderness once again and brings much enjoyment.  I encourage you to go outside and enjoy the great outdoors, even it is just to your backyard or a park.  We live in a beautiful world and should enjoy it!
