Sometimes it’s the things in your own backyard, so to speak, that you don’t pay attention to. I hadn’t been to Valley Forge National Historic Park since…I couldn’t even tell you when but it’s been a long time. While the park has a pretty busy road running straight through the middle, it’s part park and part historic site. That’s what I love about it. On one side of the road it’s mini vans with license plates from far away. Meanwhile while I was strolling around by the National Memorial Arch I saw a few people who hadn’t taken their work badges off during their lunch break. And after all, who can blame them as it was a beautiful day.
