Every once in a while, a town forgets how to 4th of July. Yesterday was that day for the village of Craig. A handful of folks drifted through town to celebrate our Nations independence on a warm, windy and dusty afternoon. Through the magic of Adobe software, I’ve transformed these images into gloomy, high-contrast black and whites that make it seem much more miserable than it actually was.
To be honest, we kind of saw this coming. And we still had a good time visiting with the folks who were around. They were all fisherman, which is nice. Craig could use a “4th off”, though I’m sure Joe’s Bar and a few the town residents still put on a good fireworks show. While some folks were bummed we opted out of the Fireworks and all night BBQ, it did give our staff the opportunity to roam around the region and enjoy some of the other Independence day celebrations. Or just sleep.
We hope you had a safe holiday and are ready for some July dry fly fishing.
