Memorial Day is a day to spend time thinking of those we have lost while they were out protecting our country and our freedom. This means that we are free to spend time out enjoying our country, America the Beautiful. Here are some pictures I took while we out this weekend on our little Jeep adventure. Feel free to use these pictures in anyway you like, they would make lovely background images.
We went out to find Sunflower Mine. While we didn’t see any sunflowers there were many other beautiful wildflowers along the way. There have been fires recently and it was amazing to see the wildflowers and new growth among all the burnt trees.
We stayed along a very tiny stream for awhile and the trees and wildlife were beautiful. It was a nice break from our regular desert scenery.
We also found purple rock, It was a type of shale or something. It was so neat to find rock that color, I have never seen any. If I had I would have thought it was fake. My sister and I collected some small purple river rocks and I took home a couple of pieces of the bigger purple shale rocks, they will go around my fire pit in the backyard. My goal is to take a few rocks from everywhere we travel and have a small patio of memories. Hopefully soon I will have pictures of the projects we make with the rocks.
We found lots of mine remnants and took a look in the old machinery and looked in at the mine shafts as well.
We finished up around sunset, it was a nice end to a great day.
America is beautiful. It’s amazing that I was able to enjoy that beauty with my family.

Lately my Journal Writing Tips and Entry Ideas List has been getting buckets of love on Pinterest. Thanks for the love everyone! I really do hope that my ideas help keep some positivity and happiness in your life. To try to help give you (and myself) reminders of the tips and ideas of what to write in your journal I created these printable bookmarks.
These bookmarks would be great to put in your Journal for those times that you want to write but feel negative, or stumped. Putting this bookmark in a journal would be a great gift idea to cheer someone up as well.
I have to brag- the pictures used in the backgrounds were all taken by me! I know that with my little point and shoot camera photography is mostly luck but I am so proud of the beauty I was able to capture! My last camping post
and my Arizona Valentine’s
are proof of that too 🙂
Of course, the best inspiration that these stemmed from is on the Original Article- Journaling Tips and Journal Entry Ideas. I do go back and update it every time I think of another topic or idea that would add some inspiration for someone, just as I did when I linked up the Journal Writing Ideas After the Loss of a Loved One. I always post my updates via Facebook, Twitter, Bloglovin’ or Pinterest if you are interested in knowing when I have added something to the list.

Feel free to print and share these bookmarks as much as you want! Thank you for doing so- I feel proud to have put together something people like! They turn out best being printed on cardstock or thicker paper, but you could be creative with them too!
