faces from afar

this was the reason for my trip (with my family mom, dad, brother, sister and thier kids)  it is one of the must see and take pitures of type places in america.  the entry fee is cheap $10 per car, and the view are spectacular.  being here made me think of wanting to see what it would be like on independance day.  although my dream idea for independance day would certainly be better then the reality,( i picture fireworks going off beind thier heads, bands playing patriotic music, ect.(in short baseball, apple pie, the hole nine yards)) it is still a sight to see without all that.  there are several places to stop and take pictures of it before you get there and i am sure you could see it just as well without paying the parking fee but for ten bucks there is no need.  seeing it through some of the tunnels along the way was another of those things that make a american just beam with pride =)  i don't know how to explain it to people so that if you didn't live in the US that you would be able to understand, but it is just one of those things.  when i saw it i thought this is what my relatives laid down thier lives for (no not the monument or the land itself but for the idea that it represents)  this is one place that i hope all americans and tourist get to see even if for just a brief ten minute visit. (and yes ten minutes would be plenty of time, it's not like the move and talk lol)
