Manzanar in California's Owens Valley on Independence Day

Happy Independence Day to Americans everywhere! My wife and I are on vacation in the Eastern Sierra Nevada mountains of California, a part of it called the Owens Valley (which, His Serenity notes in passing, is God’s Own Country). We watched fireworks last night put on by the Paiute-Shoshone Indian Reservation in the town of Bishop, sponsored by the tribe’s Indian veterans post (which has a great exhibit of the tribe’s many military veterans stretching from today back to WWI, located in the Cultural Center in Bishop).
