fourth of july at the estes park center, ymca

The YMCA feels a lot like a small town, and Fourth of July carries holiday excitement that anonymous communities don't seem to have.  Who dresses up for the 4th?  Everyone.  Plus the winners of the parade contest will dog the other departments for at least a week.  Here are my photos of our morning parade under the visage of Long's Peak, featuring LT students in almost every department.
