Joshua Thanksgiving

Shot this image during last thanksgiving. Almost forgot about it until I saw this photo used by the US Department of the Interior on their thanksgiving message. Got pretty excited when it appeared on my FB Feed. I remember pulling over the side and telling my family to be safe while I go a little […]
