The team has an early departure from our incredible campsite at Camp Kapapa, along the shore of Flathead Lake.  It was very restful for everyone, we were sorry to leave.

Nayaja and Rupasi were excited to participate in the Grateful Nation Montana Freedom 5K race held annually on the Fourth of July.

Happy Birthday America!  And let the running begin!

Peace and the love of freedom and liberty are close friends.

The water station crew join in to celebrate peace and the birth of America.

Brittany's good friend and neighbor was an invaluable source of aid and support for this Fourth of July race celebration.  Her daughter Charlotte sang America the Beautiful before the race began.  Thank you Charlotte for your excellent rendition of this timeless song!

One of this year's top finishers was happy to hold the torch and share his hopes for peace.

Barb finished first in her category.  Congrats Barb!  You are an inspired runner and peace lover.

Congrats to you Roy! He also won his age category and was happy to share his hopes for peace.  Natalie also joined us.

Another winner!  And peace lover.

Thank you Brittany for welcoming us to the race.  It was such a joy to meet you, Dave and your family.  You are indeed peace lovers and servers of our world, spreading hope and goodwill with all you do.  Our lives are better for knowing you.

Brittany and Dad.
