United States of America

The United States is our home. Which state is home?  We are not really sure. Bonnie has lived in thirteen different places across five states. Trinity immigrated when he was twenty-seven.

For us, the USA is a land of opportunity. It is where we both started with nothing yet through hard work and sacrifice we were able to overcome poverty.

South Sister Beckons, Oregon

Moraine Lake glistened before us.  It was as far as we had planned to hike that day, a moderate 6.8 mile loop with a 2000 feet elevation gain.  Beyond the smooth surface of the lake, Charity beckoned.  She is the youngest and tallest of the three volcanic peaks collectively known as the Three Sisters.  She sang a song of beauty that had our feet pushing further up the path as if the pied piper himself were playing his song for us.
